What are the requirements for Fedora 7, because the computer I plan to run it on isn't that good, but it runs well enough.

Hardware requirements:
Fedora 7 requires an Intel Pentium or better processor, and is optimized for Pentium 4 and later processors.

* Recommended for text-mode: 200 MHz Pentium-class or better
* Recommended for graphical: 400 MHz Pentium II or better
* Minimum RAM for text-mode: 128MiB
* Minimum RAM for graphical: 192MiB
* Recommended RAM for graphical: 256MiB

6.3.1.2. Hard disk space

The disk space requirements listed below represent the disk space taken up by Fedora 7 after the installation is complete. However, additional disk space is required during the installation to support the installation environment. This additional disk space corresponds to the size of /Fedora/base/stage2.img on Installation Disc 1 plus the size of the files in /var/lib/rpm on the installed system.

In practical terms, additional space requirements may range from as little as 90 MiB for a minimal installation to as much as an additional 175 MiB for an "everything" installation. The complete packages can occupy over 9 GB of disk space.
In reality however - especially if you use Gnome or KDE - you'll get much better usability with 512 MB RAM, the more the better.
