yah i know 384 is adequate, im just saying that when i do all the things that
i do on the live cd (internet, games, email, office, etc.) it tends to take
up some more ram then just 256.
I will sometimes use firefox on the live cd and do lots of surfing, and
firefox isnt too light on the ram (ive clocked it doing between 30 and 60 mb
of ram before)
But if you install or dont run too much software, 384 is good
