We have CentOS 5 running on one Desktop with 384 MB of RAM.
Our other 2 Desktops have 512 MB. It runs OK. I doubt that you running
it on a Laptop with 384 MB would be any different. Obviously, it will
run more slowly, but, it_will_run. I have installed GNOME/KDE and a LOT
of stuff, on all 3 boxes and the box with 384 MB does not seem to have
any issues.
