Just for funsies I attempted a text mode install in an i386 KVM guest
with 128 megs of ram.  Using today's rawhide boot.iso (which has stage2
on it) and pointing it at an http mirror.  Guess what, the install
completed fine, and booted after the fact.  I picked a minimal package
set from the package selector (included vim-enhanced though).  That's
still 428~ packages.

So why do you have to go through gyrations to install Fedora on 128 meg
machines?  Or why do you have to install something other than Fedora?
