Excluding programs and cache, my memory usage is 132MB right now

Oh dear. So as long as you don't want to do anything with Windows, 200mb RAM is plenty? Have you tried it? Obviously not, or you wouldn't have wasted your time.

I couldn't even get it to boot on 256. 512MB is the lowest I've been able to do on a bare/stripped system. Don't forget, memory usage will peak during boot up and you need caches for the system to be responsive.

(by the way, I don't know why you had to comment about how great you think Linux is.. I'm a Windows user, I don't care)
