Re: Fedora 6 is not able to install in PIII, 256MB SD RAM, 1.3GHz



if u suggesting me to upgrade to 512MB...then I am really sorry...
I have to throw my 2 128MB stick...and purchage 2 256MB ram or 1 512MB ram...
I am planning to completely upgrade the system..and these day it is hard to find and 256MB SD ram...
But that should be the last option.......

Hold the phone.

How much memory can your motherboard accept? 256 MB sounds like half the
capacity that a Pentium-3 motherboard ought to have.

The first thing--the /very/ first thing--that I do when acquiring a new
system is to equip the motherboard with as much memory as it will accept
and recognize. 512 MB /minimum/ is what I would recommend.
