Would be just perfect. If this happens, can you please make 2x1GB partitions
and the rest you can divide in a small linux rescue partition (with a
minimal Debian install. This turnes out to be useful if the machine gets
funny), and the rest swap.

To Aaron, of course 128MB do better than 64MB. But the current software
doesn't require this much RAM, at least as long as there is no memory leak.
We can always upgrade the memory later on.
