Re: Can't install fedora 16
instead F14 you could also try Cent OS 6.2 or Scientific 6.2 (these are based on Fedora 12, and still supported many years). If you want to use Fedora 14 (even though the support for Fedora 14 ended several month ago), I recommend that you use the XFCE or LXDE desktop. Gnome and KDE needs much more RAM than other linux desktop environments.
There are also some decent linux distros which are less RAM hungry like: Vector Linux (XFCE version), Arch (good documented, but a bit more work to install and configure), ArchBang (based on Arch, pretty easy to install), CrunchBang. And Puppy Linux is even lighter that those, and probably only needs 128 MB RAM or even less.
