I'm trying to install Ubuntu (or Edubuntu) on a Dell latitude CPt laptop 
that was donated to my school. The installation stalls at the point where 
there is a brown rectangle on the screen and the icon for Nautilus appears. 
The laptop has only 129MB RAM (and a 6GB hard disk). Is this the reason it 
is stalling? Is there a minimal version of Ubuntu I could use? I am afraid 
that more RAM for the laptop will be too expensive.
