It only uses as much RAM as you choose for it to use. It runs "fine" on 128MB of RAM. OK. It *functions* with that much RAM. Really, we're not too interested in supporting low memory systems with the LiveDVD media. We'll make sure it all runs on 256MB, but I won't make any guarantees below that. Of course, if you choose fluxbox for your window manager and only run console apps, it'll definitely use less memory than if you run KDE and 40 Firefox instances. ;] -- Chris Gianelloni Release Engineering Strategic Lead Alpha/AMD64/x86 Architecture Teams Games Developer/Council Member/Foundation Trustee Gentoo Foundation
