I've been running FreeBSD 9 on a Pentium I with 150 MHz and
128 MB RAM (FreeBSD 5 with 64 MB RAM before that), so I'd
say 128 MB RAM sounds possible; however, do you mean "a real
Intel 80386" when you say i386, or is a Pentium-class CPU
within your scope?

Also consider the difference between "(basically) runs on"
vs. "is usable (for)". ;-)
