I ran KDE 3.5 on systems with 128MB RAM without problems. Maybe you
need to allocate some swap, but this should at least work.

I used KDE 1.x on a Cyrix 150+ which worked pretty fast. On a AMD K6-2
333MHz I remember that KDE 2 and 3 felt sluggish compared to 1, but I
do think I managed with them for a while on that system as well. I
don't think Trinity would really work on those systems. What I
remember KDE 1.x was more complete than many of the current light
weight DEs.
