I have my Dell Dimension 4300s that I want to turn into a Windows Home Server. The specs are here. It has 256MB of RAM and I know it need 512MB. It currently has no hard drive but I'm gonna try to get a 200GB drive for it. I really don't want to put much money into this (AKA don't want to spend money on ram). How can I force it to install on 256 MB of ram?

Even if you could force it to load it would not run properly. You need to update the memory. Go for one GB if possible.
