    @warlock 64, you can try to slipstream your installation disc and throw out all unneccessary components. Here is a guide on how to do that: How to build a slipstream Windows 7 install disc | News | TechRadar

    @warlock 64, yes it can be done, no special tools needed.

    I installed Windows 7 home premium on an old Kyak I had with 256mb of ram. It ran a little slow and did not have the aero effects but it did run.
    As far as being able to run more than one application at a time with that kind of ram I think will be kind of hard, didn't go that far in my testing, just wanted to see if Windows 7 would actually run on a dinosaur.
