no, I didn't, since I have no idea what it is or where I can find it at.

ok... I just got back home, and I'm going to boot with only 0.5GB of RAM.
do I need to check out something in particular?

It's an .iso file...
Do I need to boot with it, or can I run it under DaemonTools?

You need to first burn it as an image file, then boot from it and let it run..

Yeah, I figured it out.
So I'm going to boot with that with all the RAM installed, and then if no results, I'll boot normally with 0.5GB. Is that ok?

Sounds like a plan!!

Keep in mind that you will need to run the test for several hours, preferably overnight, for accurate results.. you may want to try the boot test first..
