Has anyone succesfully installed windows 7 on a system with a low amount of ram?

The system requirements from Microsoft about Windows 7 outline a minimum 1 gb for a 32 bit installation.

"Windows 7 scale really well to low-end hardware. I have installed Win 7 x32 on a Pentium 4 Celeron 2.2GHz with 384MB memory, and it was perfect for basic tasks like Office, iTunes, Web, etc etc.

Win 7 has been optimized quite thoroughly, and most user experience states that they are pretty impressed with how well performance scales across different hardware.

Give it a shot - any machine within the past 5 years should work well."
