	Add 16bit colour and 800x600 resolution for the video adapter.
32MB RAM is a good threshold, but I think 16MB is doable.

	Note that I would apply these standards to desktop systems.
Notebooks are another story, because they are more precious and cannot be
upgraded as well.

	Really? My main system at home is a P1MMX 266MHz with 32MB of RAM.
Compilation is not super-fast, but it is doable. Our server here is a PII
233MHz system (with 64MB RAM), and I compile kernels on it.
