Well, the problem is that the 20MB has to come out of the executable RAM, 
since the CF (or CD-ROM) image is unpacked into a memory drive.  The 
biggest RAM configuration for the net4501 is 64MB.  If you had the 32MB 
version, you wouldn't have enough memory left for the kernel to run in.

But I'm sure you are welcome to build your own image with the features 
you'd like.  Let us know how it works out.
