Both netboot and netboot-gtk's mini.iso, booted as a CD, are just fine
with 1G RAM (modulo cryptsetup OOMKs for a little while, #1028250), and
have been for years. That's how all my VM testing has been done for
years. :)

If numbers are updated for netboot, maybe make it clear it's for PXE

Looping in Samuel who has been bumping requirements on a regular basis,
and who is likely to have good ideas in this area.
