It's good to know that modern linux still works on 486. Thanx for posting.

I wonder what would be the minimal memory requirements for modern kernels. 32 mb? Less? More?

Even in the early versions the requirements were around 4 mb. But there was also a hacked version that could boot with only 1 mb of ram (linux-lite by Paul Gortmaker).
