No need a USB & trick.
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=708966 (see comment 4, or
21) I did a fresh F-15-LXDE install on my 512MB (that's the maximum) RAM
notebook using the workaround.

I had heard the min. RAM would get back to 512MB on F16; looks like
it's not. Too bad for light DE users with low spec. (old) notebooks.
