    Yes, 512MB RAM and 512MB SWAP partition are enough for Ubuntu installation.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    You should try Xubuntu. even with 512 MB Ram.
    It will always provide you smoother performance.

    If you want Gnome just keep up with Ubuntu.
    just let us know what problems you are having

    thx! i don't know what the problem with that computer is... tonight or tomorrow i'll get a new computer with an AMD XP processor and 768 RAM or something like that, hope that will work before I loose all the hair on my head

    With the new computer the installation worked perfectly. But another small problem now, after the installation i exchanged my DVD because it had problems reading the discs. and now when i try apt-cdrom add it can't mount the cdrom anymore.. any suggestions?
