I couldn't get by with less than 32 meg. But then again that's with the
company's money. 16 meg should do it if you are careful. If you are going to
use Photoshop, the sky's the limit. Win95 really likes to see at least 16 meg.

Frame 5 with the Quadralay package (on a Mac PowerPC) needs 13 meg! System
7.5.1 needs another 8 to 10 meg. If you run a mail package all the time,
that's another 5 meg. Yeeesh!
