Ha-ha. m0n0wall takes a different approach than some other software
firewall packages that are installed on a hard disk - there's no swap
space to make up for the shortage of RAM, and even the entire root file
system is kept in RAM. Of course with swapping enabled there would be no
problems running it with 24 MB or even less (I don't think you're
running Win98 SE with 24 MB and no swap), but as m0n0wall is targeted at
embedded PCs that do not have hard drives, that's no option here.
