#18 Installer should check available RAM

Bug 100516 - I really think the installer should check the amount of physical RAM in a system before defaulting the installer to on.

This means people with a 64MB machine who just blindly accept the defaults will not have the preloader enabled, but those with more memory (e.g. 128MB) will. It's not an ideal solution but better than nothing.

If you'd like to see this in the installer then vote for this bug (no 'me too' comments tho please), however if you've got any useful comments like what you think the minimum RAM to default preloader to on should be, then add them to the bug.
