Server Requirements

The minimum system requirements for installing CD One are shown in Table 1-2.

Table 1-2 Server System Requirements1

Requirement Type
Minimum Requirements

System hardware

17-inch color monitor.

CD-ROM drive.

Memory (RAM)

256 MB (all CD One components).

Available drive space
