It's best to have the shell used by the sysadmin, the login chain (getty + 
login or sshd and the PAM stuff), some utilities (EG busybox), and all shared 
objects used by them.  But you can get by with a lot less.

I've attached a sample config file that causes just under 10M of RAM to be 
used.  No big deal on a machine with 256M of RAM that is likely to experience 
a DOS attack.
