Let me just point out to P-1 newcomers reading this that P-1 factoring has two stages, and stage 1 does not require any more than the default memory, so P-1 stage 1 factoring can proceed on any system.

Only stage 2 requires the extra (beyond the default of 8M, that is) memory you specify in Prime95's Options/CPU.../"Daytime available memory" and "Nighttime available memory". (Also, ECM factoring requires this extra memory.)
