I would suggest using 6.0.8.

It's the best compromise of size and capabilities for a 1Mb Plus with a single floppy, esp just to boot.

I suspect the older machines will go faster as they have no hard storage to contend with (or obscure monitor connections that I have to remember how to connect or locate the right adapter!)  Be patient, the list will be posted as soon as I make enough significant headway.
