If you believed that you’d believe anything.
Maybe you could power a digital watch with it, but a puter?
And did you really think you could put a Linux kernal in a 2 Mbyte ROM???

Just compiled my kernel with loads of useless stuff and :
Boot sector 512 bytes.
Setup is 2443 bytes.
System is 1036 kB
warning: kernel is too big for standalone boot from floppy
