What kind of memory requirement would there be for 3 floppies?  Will 32MB
be plenty?

Iirc, I had to give up on my <12MB-main-memory notebooks when the 2-floppy
method became the defacto default.  I have lots of hardware running with
32MB, still, and will need to continue to install these with floppies.
