Welcome to the CentOS fora. Please see the recommended reading for new users linked in my signature.

From the CentOS 6.2 Release Notes:
The installer needs at least 392MB of memory to work. Text mode will automatically be used if the system has less than 652MB of memory.

You should be able to install 5.8 but that is still a pretty minimal amount of RAM and is below the recommend minimum from upstream.

You are welcome. Marking this thread [RESOLVED] for posterity.

P.S. Please do not quote entire posts to no purpose. It just adds noise to the channel. If quotes are required for context trim appropriately.
