Can I install Sharepoint Services on an Acer WHS?

Is the computing power too low (slow) to install SharePoint Services V3 onto an Acer Windows Home Server? It does have 2 GB of ram but the processor is only an Atom CPU 230 @ 1.6 GHz.

Microsoft requirements for Sharepoint Services V3 states a processor with a speed of 2.5 Ghz.

So am I out of luck or does someone have some work around suggestions??

I'm sure you can install it, but it may run slow depending on how many people are using it. If you are just installing it for yourself to use as a test or to learn, it should work, slow maybe but should install and run.

I would not use that computer for anything more than a couple of people using it at once though, unless you double the RAM at least. Ther is no workaround for a slow CPU, unless you can call a new CPU a workaround :-)
