[CentOS] CentOS in low RAM settings

Hello listmates,

I have been playing with Xen VM's and was wondering what the minimum
RAM size in which you could run CentOS 5.5 (i386). So far I managed to
install in 256 MB or 512 MB and then shrink the VM's RAM to 128 MB and
still run the installation. Would anyone know why the install in a 128
MB VM fails (even in text mode)?

Thanks.

Boris.
