Note that the RAM requirement is for the live CD.  The alternate CD
will work on machines with far less than 256, just with more
frustration and time as you go down (I'd guess the real minumum is
either 64 or 32 megs).  It used to be quoted as 192, so I'm not sure
if the actual requirements changed or if it just made more sense to
round to a near stick size.  The disk space requirement is slightly
inflated as well, but not by as much.  You should be able to install
on just under 3 gig, but would have very little room for documents,
tmp files, etc.  You can strip down Xubuntu custom to be pretty tiny
(I'm working on this atm).
