Mint 10 LXDE, Mint 11 LXDE and Mint 11 install with 256MB of RAM and less if you have a SWAP partition already installed. All you have to do is use another distro like Puppy and create the SWAP partition with Gparted and then run the Mint live CD. In the case of Mint 10 LXDE you can run Gparted from the live CD, create the SWAP partition and then run the installer.
I have several distros in a PIV with 256MB of RAM with 16MB shared by the VGA card including Mint 10 LXDE and Mint 11.
