qemu may be a bit different .. but in a way that a 256Mb machine could
be of lower RAM ... for testing i'd suggest vmware (the server edition
is free too and really easy to install). So , not that it's really
different in results but just less booring :).

I tested xubuntu on a 256 Mb machine, with an integrated graph card
that shares the mem. I couldn't install.

I didn't check the reason further,  but from what i've seen when the
panel 's gone X freezes too and i can't do anything else. It seems
even processes start to be killed.

It could be interesting to mount --bind  a sshfs | nfs | or typical
file system to catch the logs (vmaware may help here as it 's easy to
use an eth card).

i'd bet those issues cames from unionfs and its oops.

What's the meaning of ramdisk_size then ?
