    You'll more than likely have to sacrifice other programs, but in theory you can get Linux with KDE onto a 2GB partition. It's going to take an awful lot of tweaking in the installer to make sure it only installs packages you absolutely need. For this task I believe Slackware or maybe Yoper would be your best bet. I'm not familiar with Yoper, but it seems to be popular among the "small but fast" crowd.

    Of course, making a larger partition may very well be much easier than tailoring your install, depending on what distribution you choose.
