Of course you can do a very minimal install. Probably it's more about what they expect you to install. Fedora is a little more about "testing," while Mandrake is a little more about "using," and Fedora is a little more about servers while Mandrake is a LOT about desktops. In both categories there's an implication that you'll have more installed and running at the same time on Fedora. Not that you have to.
I just saw that FC2 has a minumum memory for graphical mode as 256MB, with a recommendation of 512MB. Mandrake 10 has a minimum of 64MB with 128MB recommended. What gives here? They have similar software included don't they?
I've got FC2 running well on a old 128 MB PIII here. It could use some more memory to reduce swapping, but it is completely usable, just a little slow.
