True, at least for the non-Live install DVD of both currently-supported versions
(Fedora 15 and 16.)

Installing from a Live spin currently is much different than installing
from the non-Live install DVD.

I made a non-Live DVD of Fedora 16 using the "treebuilder" branch of anaconda
which is [will become] a feature of Fedora 17.  It successfully installed
using 318MB of RAM (256MB + 64MB - 2MB), in elapsed wall-clock time
of about 45 minutes, which is 80% longer than the 25 minutes that I see
when I use 1GB.  I tried using 250MB of RAM, but gave up after an hour
because it was less than half way through the 1200 packages of default
Graphical Desktop.
