[clug] Small Installation of Gentoo

I'm trying to install Linux on a SPARCstation 4 and have discovered the 
wonders of Gentoo Linux.  I like the philosophy.  I like the challenge 
of basically controlling the whole install process.  I'm having a little 
difficulty, however, with the fact that the SPARCstation 4 I've got only 
has a 1G hard disk.... :-(

Does anyone have any hints on how to get Gentoo smaller (in particular 
how to restrict what an "emerge sync" downloads), or even on another 
distro with similar updatability that will fit on this machine?
