No, that figure is still correct. You can even install on systems with as 
little as 24MB using the regular installer if you know what you're doing.

But the *live CD* is NOT Debian Installer!!!

The live CD does need a *lot* more memory than the regular installer and 
may also be using a different kernel.

You may have better luck trying the regular installer.

Note also that the live CD is (currently) not covered at all by the 
installation guide.
