From the installation manual:
        "You must have at least 32MB of memory and 110MB of hard disk
        space. For a minimal console-based system (all standard
        packages), 250MB is required. If you want to install a
        reasonable amount of software, including the X Window System,
        and some development programs and libraries, you'll need at
        least 400MB. For a more or less complete desktop system, you'll
        need a few gigabytes."

Please describe what it is you want to do, or how "fc" works. Also take
a look at the different options for diff ("man diff" in a terminal).
