[ARMedslack] Running armedslack on boards with LESS then 64 MB of ram.

Remember to change the board type;) Also pay attention to the ethernet 
driver as my board has STE100. VT support is disabled as I find it 
useless on my board.

BTW, I'm not quite sure, but HAL & D-Bus serve no purpose for you so you 
may disable them (I might be wrong...). Also aggety seems to be useless, 
so I disabled console logins in /etc/inittab in my installation.

Config files in attachment.

Best regards,
Andrzej Telszewski
