RAM = Random Access Memory.

It is the memory the operating system and applications use while running.

1 Megabyte (Mb) of Ram = 2^20 bytes (a byte has 8 bits or digits in base two so can represent a number from 0 to 255) = approx 1000000 bytes.

Windows 95 can run in 8Mb but is much happier with 16 or 32. Win98 needs a minimum of 16Mb but again will be much happier with 32Mb.

You need a certain amount of RAM to run a program simply because that is the amount or memory it needs to store all the things that it needs to run.

Cheers,

Raymond.
