Define "minimum"?  Most of the setups have rescue disks that get
you a command prompt and an editor and afew tools on one floppy 

My first Linux install was on a box with a 20mb hard drive.

IE:  Getting in under 100m should NOT be difficult, especially
if you skip X and stick to text stuff.  If I were doing it I'd
just do a standard debian (my SystemOfChoice) install and unselect
all the larger packages I didn't need ...
