Yes, I installed PCLinuxOS 2010 on a laptop with 512Mb RAM. I think it was the horrid CD drive in it as much as anything. But once installed, it was fine. Normally I do the "Add Locale" before I install, but I thought better of it. It was a case of Insert CD, Boot, Connect Wireless (to make sure it will), Do Nothing Else, Install, Reboot, THEN Add Locale, OpenOffice, etc.
