[CentOS] Centos 6 installation memory requirements

Will (does) Centos 6 require 512Mb of memory for the GUI install like 
FC14 or the lower requirement of FC13?

My ASUS EE 700 has ~490Mb of memory (vidoe steals some from the 512Mb 
base) and FC14 switches to text install and does not install any GUI, 
leaving the boot in test mode.

I recall a message earlier that 6 is based off of 14, but not the final 
Anaconda, thus my question.

It would be NICE if the install can work with at least 384Mb of memory, 
as this is the recommended minimum for FC14 so I would think it is the 
miniumum for RHEL/Centos 6.

I am seeing FC leave more older hardware behind and with its short 
cycles and 'currentness' of apps for RHEL 6, I am looking at moving some 
of my desktops back from FC to Centos.  FC13 may be the last FC for some 
of them...
