Yes, I did overlook or ignore the line that said, "You will need 
at least 192MB of RAM to install from this CD." :(

Maybe adding a line to the Install CD like, "Use this to install 
on older computers with < 192 MB RAM.", might guide others to 
make a better choice.

I tell people to read everything presented to them, but I know 
that it is because of my tendency not to do so.

Downloading the Install disk which will probably serve me much 

Thanks to all who answered swiftly.
