Description of problem:
Doing a GUI install with 128MB Ram seems to result in a reboot after
the packages selection has been made. The install seems to work ok in
text mode install.

Perhaps the could be a recomeneded ram size next to the install option
or on the boot screen or maybe anaconda could warn or force the
install into text mode if the ram is a certain figure.

I have seen the GUI install work with 192MB Ram.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
anaconda on FC2 install cd

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
I have not had this problem my self but have seen a couple of people
in #fedora that have experianced it.

Works fine here with mem=128M

Does your system use base memory, for video.  When you are installing
could you hit ctrl-alt-f2 and grab the output of free and cat
/proc/meminfo and append it to the report.

I have no further info to give I am afraid. I have not had this issue
myself and dont have a machine available to test with 128. I does
sound probable that some ram is being stolen by video. I should have
thought about that myself. All the couple of people i saw in #fedora
that had the issue managed to install using the text install with out
problems. If i get another oportunity I shall try and get some further
