I used FC5 to install to a PIII. Used text mode for the install. It's
slower than hell. The INSTALL-HOWTO will point out that you really need
some horsepower under the hood for FC6. If it says that 256MB is
minimal, you'll get minimal, if at all. Especially if memory is shared
with video. Then, you really don't have 256MB of ram. You'll have
X-amount less. 

It's got all 8 cylinders firing and the bleeding edge means hardware as
well as software. Putting lipstick on a pig is still a pig, no
disrespect to your machine intended. You may be better served with
Ubuntu in this situation. Ric
