I'm running FC6 on a Pentium III 1Ghz machine with 512Mb RAM and a

GUI, I've found that KDE and Gnome both run just fine on it. If you find
your system is not fast enough, try switching to XFCE or another
lightweight desktop as recommended previously.

I want to get rid of the window xp on this machine since window xp
keeps updates, virus, worms, and it puts a lot of files into
differenct places and eventually slowdonw the system.
It depends what desktop software you pick. Gnome or KDE (the standard
desktops) are happiest at 256-512MB as they include all the "eye candy"
and windows like stuff.
There are lighter weight desktop environments such as Xfce in extras
are fast on a 128MB machine.
