From
http://fedora.redhat.com I have cut and paste in the requirements.

Hardware Requirements
The following information represents the minimum hardware requirements necessary to successfully install Fedora Core 2.

Note
The compatibility/availability of other hardware components (such as video and network cards) may be required for specific installation modes and/or post-installation usage.

CPU Requirements
This section lists the CPU specifications required by Fedora Core 2.

Note
The following CPU specifications are stated in terms of Intel processors. Other processors (notably, offerings from AMD, Cyrix, and VIA) that are compatible with and equivalent to the following Intel processors may also be used with Fedora Core.

Minimum: Pentium-class

Fedora Core 2 is optimized for Pentium PRO (and later) CPUs, but also supports Pentium-class CPUs. This approach has been taken because Pentium-class optimizations actually result in reduced performance for non-Pentium-class processors.

Recommended for text-mode: 200 MHz Pentium-class or better

Recommended for graphical: 400 MHz Pentium II or better

Hard Disk Space Requirements
This section lists the disk space required to install Fedora Core 2.

Note
The disk space requirements listed below represent the disk space taken up by Fedora Core 2 after the installation is complete. However, additional disk space is required during the installation to support the installation environment. This additional disk space corresponds to the size of /Fedora/base/stage2.img (on CD-ROM 1) plus the size of the files in /var/lib/rpm on the installed system.

In practical terms, this means that as little as an additional 90MB can be required for a minimal installation, while as much as an additional 175MB can be required for an "everything" installation.

Also, keep in mind that additional space will be required for any user data, and at least 5% free space should be maintained for proper system operation.

Custom Installation (Minimal): 620MB

Server: 1.1GB

Personal Desktop: 2.3GB

Workstation: 3.0GB

Custom Installation (Everything): 6.9GB

Memory Requirements
This section lists the memory required to install Fedora Core 2.

Minimum for text-mode: 64MB

Minimum for graphical: 192MB

Recommended for graphical: 256MB
