I have a 400Mhz P2 with 128M ram as a gateway/router
it is running FC1 ok text only no GUI
your setup should be ok for text only no Xwindows,but if you want a GUI upgrade the ram to at least 256M

When you have more programs open your ram usage will increase. You can use fedora with less ram then 256, I tried with 128MB and it worked too (but slower). I believe I had core 1 even running with 64 MB ram on a pII 350 MHz (I installed it when there was 128MB in the system).
