Just to throw in my situation rather than advice, I have FC6 running
fine on 2 PII's, one 233MHz 512MbRAM and the other 400MHz with 256
MbRAM. They are not fast, but work fine. One of these days when there
is plenty of spare time, I'll try F8 on them to see what happens. I'll
leave it to others more experienced to comment on the video situation.
