	I got the impression from many emails on this list that you 
need at LEAST 4GB of RAM. I have no idea what it takes.

	It has 4 plugs for RAM so it will take that much. I just ran 
top and for some reason I have 1801764000 bytes of RAM now 
which if you simplify is 1.8 GB. I wonder why not 2.0 GB?
