Sounds like an 'install tiny' option.
On that front... maybe install tiny should switch back from a
ramdisk to a UFS formatted floppy disk image. If someone is that
short of memory then running the install from a floppy disk
filesystem is the best option. If they are that short of memory,
and the only media device they have is a single floppy disk
drive... then we may not be able to help them.
