Default Can I still use Fedora Core?

I would like to run Fedora COre 5 on my computer, but it required 196 mb or RAM to run in Graphical mode. I only have 96 mb. Can I still run it?

What about Ubuntu, which requires 128?

Or do I need more RAM?

you could try it, but your performance may be a little slow, but i doubt you'll see to much of a difference.

You really need more RAM. I tried with Mandrake on mine and it whined I needed 128MB RAM, yadah yadah yadah. It's recommended for you to buy a 256MB stick.

More RAM is the best bet. You don't want to be choosing an Operating System based on your RAM, you want to be able to choose any Operating System.
