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.


Could you please share your kickstart files with me :)
