I've not tried installing F-Anything with memory less than 1GB.  But,
just because it gets installed without Gnome, doesn't mean you can't add
it afterward.  I suspect the install is trying to "protect" folks from a
suboptimal experience with Fedora and hopefully reduce the number of
"Fedora Sucks, it is slow" complaints.  :-)
