Read that, you may have trouble running Ubuntu with that little RAM. Maybe try Xubuntu or Masonux 9.04 (http://sites.google.com/site/masonux/home)

Or try the alternate text based installer- get it here (http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/downloadmirrors#alternate).

Or add more RAM.

The last option is the best in my opinion- add more RAM. RAM is very cheap if you can find it for your machine.

some tips i have learnt the hard way

have a decent high speed hdd to install ubuntu to in the first place

do a custom install and get the swap file and go nuts with it, give it say 6 gig for swap and watch it fly

also throw as much ram at it as u can

enjoy

HDD speed doesn't matter. It's not like: if you don't have SATA HDD you cant own Linux.
