i was just wondering would i be able to insatll Ubuntu Server Edition on a server with a p3 cpu 32mb ram and a 10Gb Hdd

i have done it on 64mb of ram that was a while ago with ubuntu 6.06. From what i remember the installer went into a reduced ram mode.

I think 32mb ram may be pushing it, just to get the installer etc loaded, you can probably run the installer with more ram and take it out again afterwards i have done this before.

A running system seems to need much less than running an installer from cd.

try installing it from the alternate install cd... not the live cd

no server doesn't have a live cd, but even the text installer requires more than 32 mb of ram i think
