Here a challenge-
I have 486 SX33 8mb ram 170mb hdd, no cd-rom, no NIC, and i need  to
install linux on it using floppies. don't have distro i need, because i need to intall
it _from_floppies_ onto _hdd_.
Any links to such distro or ideas about what's the absolute,
(i mean ABSOLUTE) bare minimum list of files i have to take from
RH 6.0(installed on the other machine) to make it work
will be strongly appreciated.

1. smallest distro w/ KDE+Gnome

Which distro contains KDE and Gnome but takes the least HD space to
install, not too much memory to run, and is preferably easy to set up?
Especially good is one that can be installed via a network (w/o CD).
