FreeBSD for the i386 requires a 486 or better processor and at least 24 MB
of RAM.

http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/release-notes/fc5/test2-latest-en/sn-arch-specific.html#sn-arch-specific-x86-hardware-reqs Memory Requirements

This section lists the memory required to install Fedora Core 5 test2.

This list is for 32-bit x86 systems:


   Minimum for text-mode: 64MB

   Minimum for graphical: 192MB

   Recommended for graphical: 256MB

With only 256MB total of memory, you going to be pushing it :)

If you only allocate 24MB to freebsd, I can't begin to imagine how bad its
going to run either.

But over all, I guess it word work, painfully but it would work
