My pentium 100 MHz with 16 MB RAM runs smoothly with FreeBSD 4.10 , it
even runs fvwm under X. I am not able to run 5.3 install, as I only have
16MB, I was suspecting that I need more memory for the install proccess.
When I get another 16MB RAM to test, I will tell you. Will it be
necessary to change the memory requirements in he handbook?
We will see.
