In their book, SuSE say I need 64 MB memory in my PC. I have 4 computers and would like to set them up as a Linux network. Do I really need 64 MB in my server for 4 computers? The network will have very light traffic, as it'll be used solely for learning Linux. Appreciate your answer. Sincerely yours,
John T. Sylvanis

no you don't need 64mb of memory. In fact if you don't want to run X windows you can get by on 4 mb. 64 is the max they think you will need. Sort of like the recommend. I used to run linux on 16mb with no problem

Very good, laeuchli, so I thought myself.

Oh, I intend to run X windows and every windows amaneties that SuSE may offer. As a newbie, I am coming from Win9X, NT and Novell. Windows is not a necessary requirement for me, but, for Linux to become mainstream and seriously (deadly) compete with Windows, it will have to be thoroughly user friendly, especially on the desktop. Anyhow, thanks for your input, keep up the good work. Sincerely yours,
John
