Debian on ancient hardware

So, I’ve got my hands on a Toshiba T1910CS

The specs when I got it were along these lines:
33MHz 486
12MB RAM (4MB onboard, 8MB on an expansion card stolen from a fax machine)
200MB Hard Drive
1.4MB Floppy Drive
3Com EtherLink III 3C589D-TP PCMCIA Card for 10Base-T

Windows 95b, taking up whole drive.

(NB: at this point I had Windows drivers for the pcmcia network card, but as the install process requests lots of Files off a Win95 CD, which I don’t have and if I did, transferring the files by floppy would be ridiculously time consuming…)

And I’m going to install Linux on it. More specifically, Debian Woody (which recently became the Stable release).
