    Read that, you may have trouble running Ubuntu with that little RAM. Maybe try Xubuntu or Masonux 9.04

    Or try the alternate text based installer- get it here.

    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

    If someone asks you to sudo rm -rf anything, don't do it, and don't run any command with rm in it unless you know exactly what you're doing.things i have learnt changing from Xp pro to Ubuntu

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