Description of problem:
According to the release notes of Red Hat Linux 9, there is a minimum
requirement of 64MB for a text mode installation of Red Hat Linux 9.
The minimum requirements should be 32MB (which is what I have on my home router
running Red Hat Linux 9). 32MB runs fine in text mode.
Maybe it's better to add a sentence to the release notes, so that the memory
requirements as listed below are mentioned :
- Minimum for text-mode: 32MB
- Recommended for text-mode: 64MB
- Minimum for graphical: 128MB
- Recommended for graphical: 192MB
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Checkout the release notes of Red Hat Linux 9
Minimum = 64MB
Minimum = 32MB
Recommended = 64MB

Red Hat Linux release 9 (Shrike)
The memory requirements in the release notes were set by the developers
reponsible for Red Hat Linux, and were taken into consideration when quality
assurance testing is done for the release. Often testing reveals that the
requirements may work in some configurations and not others; in these instances
the requirements are modified until they are found to work in all configurations.
I suspect that in your case the system configuration and/or installation
selections could be performed in only 32MB...
