Ive tried it and it eats ram like crazy. I have 192MB of RAM (not much) and a pentium III 600MHz. It was ok but not as good as a normal boot. running more then one OS at a time with take ALOT more ram.

I use vmware, excellent app. To run properly though (not slugish) you really need 1GB of RAM. It will function on 256 but expect it to be really, REALLY slow.
