It only uses as much RAM as you choose for it to use.  It runs "fine" on
128MB of RAM.  OK.  It *functions* with that much RAM.  Really, we're
not too interested in supporting low memory systems with the LiveDVD
media.  We'll make sure it all runs on 256MB, but I won't make any
guarantees below that.  Of course, if you choose fluxbox for your window
manager and only run console apps, it'll definitely use less memory than
if you run KDE and 40 Firefox instances.  ;]
