Hey, you're not at the end of the scale yet. :-p My laptop has a 266 MHz
Pentium II and 160 MB of RAM and it runs FC6 too. :-) How I got it installed
with so few RAM? I had installed FC2 when that was the current version, then
upgraded to FC5 with Anaconda and a few restarts (because it would hang when
loading the repodata from the next ISO due to low RAM), and now I upgraded it
to FC6 using apt-get dist-upgrade.
