If it will cost you a harddisk, it is cheaper to install aditional memory.
I did this with my 386, expanded the memory to 11Mb, and I feel it worth the trouble because muLinux is working fine. I use it every day to print my documents trough samba.

  Hi.. when I try and install I get all the way through to the installation of the USR segment,and it looks like its just paging(or something with the hardrive reading a writing continuously) like crazy... it doesn't stop, I let it go all night to no avail, yet no appreciable memory loss.

  Q: is there a simple way to increase the size of the swap file? I have a feeling that it I can bump the size up it will get me through whatever decompression is needed.
