Java 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition
A Pentium 166MHz or faster processor with at least 32 megabytes of physical RAM is required to run graphically based applications. Forty-eight megabytes of RAM is recommended for applets running within a browser using the Java Plug-in product. Running with less memory may cause disk swapping which has a severe effect on performance. Very large programs may require more RAM for adequate performance.
You should have 40 megabytes of free disk space before acodeempting to install the Java 2 Runtime Environment.
