Though didn't completely understand by your phrase "minimum requirement for red hat linux 6" !! Guessing you are looking for system requirement...

System Requirements

These instructions are for installing Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 (RHEL6) on an IA-32 system (i.e., a 32-bit Intel- or AMD-based system) and Opteron 64-bit systems (x86_64).
Minimum Memory
Red Hat recommends for 32 bit a minimum of 1GB memory/logical CPU, and for 64 bit a minimum of 1GB of memory, 1GB/logical CPU. At SLAC, RHEL6 has been successfully installed on systems with 512 MB, but such systems have a tendency to bog down badly due to excessive swapping when too many applications are open at once.
Minimum Disk Space
OCIO recommends a minimum disk size of above 12 GB, and a minimum root partition ("/") size of about 9 GB.
Red Hat does not include a floppy version of the boot images for RHEL6. Your system will need a boot-capable CDROM drive, or a BIOS which knows how to PXE boot (ask unix-admin about that if you have questions).
