For 128 it blows up. I *have* tried it. Doing an upgrade from an old
release does work - I've tried that too (you'll need a chunk of swap).
Ditto the very small distros oriented around small boxes which I've also
tried and fiddled with for things like firewalls were Fedora is now a pain
to install and the wrong tool for the job anyway.

My comments were entirely accurate. I think you owe me an apology on list.
To complain about be being inaccurate when you haven't actually *tried*
the things and I have is most peculiar behaviour.

Either explain what the drama is in telling someone how to do the install
(and why telling people how to use Fedora on that box is a hate bomb), or
say sorry.
