I've done it on 192MB.  It wasn't pretty (mostly because the open source ATI
drivers are the only thing that supports the Rage II, and only at 800x600
when the card can do up to 102x768....seriously, Ubuntu was *not* meant for
800x600 systems), but it was functional.  That one's around 300MHz, I
think.  It's a Pentium 2.
