My first install of FreeIPA was on an OpenVZ container with only
512MB. It didn't go so well. Luckily for me it was the only container
on the system so I just bumped up the RAM. I had to set it to over 2GB
just to get through the install process. Once installed, it does use
less memory (if you have a small directory), but I still think you
would be in trouble with only 512MB. I would also go with Fedora 15 so
you can get the latest packages. And when you are ready, run the
production version on a full system or KVM so you can take advantage
of SELinux to protect the system as much as possible.
