To be fair, they probably didn't have a desktop to carry along for the
ride. But then I guess I could counter that the problem here is I
couldn't even run the installer with less than 384MB RAM. I dropped it
down to 256MB after install but then had to bump it back up again - and
I expect the first time I run yum I'll want to put it back to 512MB.

I had been trying to reduce VM memory sizes to run more at once...
