Well, reading through the deluge of mail on this list, I think that I have made
a (dissapointing) realization.

63 MB is really the limit with my eb164 and RedHat Linux.

Also, of course, / and /usr must be on the same partition. (4.0 bug)

Also, I have found a 2.0.22 milo on gatekeeper:

gatekeeper.dec.com:/pub/DEC/Linux/Alpha/Miniloader/test-images/... (I think)

I am reinstalling now with no apparent problems with milo configured to 63 MB.
Just moments ago, with 128 MB set as MEMORY_SIZE (in milo..) mkswap crashed,
then later, (with swap ignored for the meanwhile) the installer crashed while
unpacking the xf86 package.

Well, I'll run like this for a while, hopefully I can build a kernel that will
support 128 MB -- PLEASE, though, if anybody knows anything about this
disturbing aspect of Linux, let me (us?) know.
