I run a Sparc Station 5 85MHz/256MB RAM as web-server with Debian Woody, 
and everything works well.
As i don't have a CDROM on it, i netbooted the installation program 
without a problem, but i don't remember if there were 256MB or only 64MB 
when i installed it...


I have an Ultra 5 with 256m of RAM and two, Ultra 60's with 512M of RAM.  All three are perfectly happy installing and running Debian Woody.
