Re: redhat 7.1 refuses to install on 16 Mb comp

i think it sure would run. the 7.1 installation kernel is about 2 Mb, and
almost certainly way beyond what's needed. i think adding ram(only for
installation purpose) should certainly work, infact i have run rh7 with 8 Mb
of ram with "mem=8mb" option during boot up, though ofcourse i had to almost
immediately go out for a walk for the boot up to complete...
