Great!  Now I know what to look for I can put the right search string 
into google to get this page!

Well that has the information I was looking for except....

It says there that RHEL 5's minimum memory is 512Mb.  Last week I 
installed Centos 5.5 on a test system with 256Mb with a 1Gb of cache:

# free
              total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
Mem:        254124     235864      18260          0       5952      97668
-/+ buffers/cache:     132244     121880
Swap:      1052248     151876     900372

So I hope that Centos 6 will continue to be installable on a 256Mb 
system.  It does not pay to replace the memory on these test systems.  I 
can pick up 1Gb used SFF systems for about the same price as 512Mb 
memory for these old boxes.
