I didn't try, but I would definitely take a machine with faster CPU 
(>=400MHz) and more RAM (>=128MB).

If you have too little RAM, you might have trouble getting python and a 
webserver to run (or to run acceptably fast).

With too little CPU power, operations like RecentChanges could be quite 
slow. For normal pages, the new caching (WASP) and a persistent server 
helps a lot, of course, but not everything can be cached.

Also maybe rather take an x86 compatible CPU or you might have 
additional platform specific trouble. Maybe Transmeta or VIA C3.
