I have installed FC6 + Eclipse on a 5GB partition on an old Dell
Inspiron 4100 laptop: 256MB of RAM, Pentium III, etc.

I used the graphical installer, from the DVD image of FC6 which I had
used successfully before to install on an old HP Pavilion [Also a
Pentium III
but with 320MB RAM].

However, for the laptop install I unchecked ALL packages (no
and only after the install succeeded did I install Eclipse and the
GCC tool chain

I don't know if that will help or not.

Hold the phone.

How much memory can your motherboard accept? 256 MB sounds like half the capacity that a Pentium-3 motherboard ought to have.

The first thing--the /very/ first thing--that I do when acquiring a new system is to equip the motherboard with as much memory as it will accept and recognize. 512 MB /minimum/ is what I would recommend.
