[aprssig] Small LINUX build

Does 1GB even count as small?  I think I used a 32 MB flash card last 
time I loaded up a Soekris box (I forget the distro).  Didn't have any 
room for a development environment, but no shortage of space for services.

Most of my Linux boxes used to have drives in the 200 MB range.  Just 
install Debian (or your own favorite distro) and take out the packages 
you don't need.  X is a big one to leave out if you don't need graphics.
