If all you want is file serving, as long as you have disk space,
just do a minimal text install with no X/GUI and use NFS or Samba.
It might be possible in his case, and if so I do recommend the same
thing as the easiest and fastest solution.
In general, however, is not that easy. What started RULE in the first
place is exactly the fact that in many cases, even if you have enough
disk for what is called "minimal" these days, and enough RAM to work,
anaconda might not start: the installer being heavier than the kernel,
which technically is as ugly as they come.
The slinky installer which Michael Fratoni wrote for RULE goes happily
in 16 MB of RAM or less.
