FWIW, I find that running Lenny on a 64MB machine is bearable but
slowish, and Etch was already "too slow" on a 32MB machine.  So make
sure you have enough RAM.
For very simple uses, it works with less RAM, but as soon as you need to
"apt-get install" or "apt-get upgrade" the memory limit becomes severe.
