First, the post was about less than 512, and my ps3 certainly has less
(256).  A network install using rescue.img (renamed to netinst.iso or
boot.iso partway through the F9 development process) and nfs or http
works fine for me.  I may have to do text or vnc installs, I don't
recall.  Also selecting fewer packages helps, but you want fewer
packages anyway.  For 128 it may get harder, I haven't tried that small
in a while, but that's a far cry from < 512.

Alan likes to drop little hate bombs on Fedora when his pet hardware
doesn't work quite the way he thinks it should.  Regardless of the fact
that he may be one of the few people on the planet using such hardware
these days.  And often times he kicks the drama up a notch or two, just
like in this posting.  His comments were inaccurate and really not
helpful to the situation.

If only that were true.
