It works fine on 8MB systems - you shouldn't have any trouble!

If you're seeing this reported it's probably either the result of the
amount of memory being misdetected by the kernel. You can override this
by adding mem=96M to the kernel options in syslinux.cfg, on the floppy.

(I'm presuming you actually have 96MB; 98304KB = 1024 * 96)
