Fedora 15 installer needs more than 512MB RAM

I tried upgrading my system using the DVD, Netinstall CD, and
Preupgrade. Each time boot got stuck at the line "Trying to unpack
rootfs image as initramfs. . . ". It seems that the installer files
have gotten fatter and more memory is required.

This is a known problem,
but no one on the Fedora QA or Documentation team thought that it was
material to add to the Release Notes.

Hope this helps.
