How much RAM does Linux require??? Geez, I thought Linux could run just
fine on a 486. And most 486s have little RAM (4-32). What about a swap
file? Shouldn't it let you install anyway? This is Linux!
BTW, I had this problem on my friend's 8MB RAM 486, although I wasn't
sure of the problem at the time.
