Umm, don't you think that the Anaconda developers know what is 
required, and that the rather minimal text-mode install is designed to 
use less memory?

OP:  There may be useful info in the other VTs when the error occurs.  

If you can't find a workaround, try Debian, which has much better 
support than Fedora for small memory machines, due to the different 
goals of the projects.  If you want to run a GUI on 256 MB, you might 
want to choose something less memory-hungry than Gnome or KDE.
