I would have to agree. If you drop X and a few other frivolous things, you
can squeeze a Linux install into a 60 meg HD. The problem is that the
developmental tools (gcc, et al.) take up a ton of room. It's been a while
since I've crunched Linux down into a small HD, but if memory serves, you
can fit it onto a 100 Mb drive with everything you need to run the mud.

If you can't swing that or don't want to lose Win 3.1, then I would
suggest that you join a mud that is already up and running and assist them
in their efforts. Yes, there is that something special about having your
own mud, but if you can't fit it onto your system and don't have the money
to rent space from a server, then you should be able to find someone out
there that needs your help. Matter of fact, someone posted about needing
people a few days ago...
