I have installed xubuntu on a 128MB RAM machine. Unfortunately, it is
swapping *a lot*, right after log-in.
So even though they state that the system requirements is 128MB RAM,
that does not work very well.
Hence, I guess there is not much hope for running a plain vanilla
Ubuntu of any kind with that little RAM. One could probably tweak
I think there has been some discussion on some xubuntu-mailing-list
somewhere. Might be worth a search, for those who are interested.
