20MB is kind of big -- for one particular system I'm building right 
now, I have some server software (which uses Kerberos, and thus slurps 
in a fair number of Kerberos-related libraries), IPsec, and a web-based 
management interface (including RAID and virtual volume management) 
which all fits into < 4MB of on-board flash memory :-)
