I recommend you install debian Linux, that allows for custom installations
that do not occupy more resources than needed.
The Ghostscript 5.10 interpreter and fonts take less than 9MB of disk space.
Try add gv (421Kb) and an X server (there used to be fully usable linux+X
installs in 8 floppies). Ghostscript also exists for FreeDOS.
Note that it is possible to get quite a decent Linux box for < USD$1000.
Hope this helps,
