Hello, Nick -

I've been working on this for a few embedded systems that we're working
with, and I've managed to make a ~380M CentOS install that's fully
functional, along with a ~300k Apache 2.0.54 install, and adding my
special PHP 5.0.4 is another ~1M.

When I'm all done, I'll be posting my procedures for the masses, because
this whole thing has been such a pain in the ass.  The docs should be
done in about a week.

Hope that helps
