I beg to differ, but I've had 3.1 running on an 8 Meg 486/33 machine
before. Granted, it didn't run worth a parachute full of holes at 50,000
feet, but it did boot properly.
And as for memory being cheap, as I found out yesterday when I ordered
another stick for one of my workstations, the really cheap RAM is stuff
specific to VIA chipsets. Thought I'd found a 256 Meg stick for $44...
turns out it was closer to twice that after I got gouged for shipping.
