You should be fine, as I recall xp only requires 128MB of RAM. If you do go with xp be sure to install the sp2, it's very important.

From what I remember, XP needs at least a 500mhz or 600mhz processor to run well! 256 RAM is fine!.

From Bill Gates mouth to your ear.

Here's What You Need to Use Windows XP Professional

PC with 300 megahertz or higher processor clock speed recommended; 233 MHz minimum required (single or dual processor system);* Intel Pentium/Celeron family, or AMD K6/Athlon/Duron family, or compatible processor recommended

128 megabytes (MB) of RAM or higher recommended (64 MB minimum supported; may limit performance and some features)

1.5 gigabytes (GB) of available hard disk space*

Super VGA (800 x 600) or higher-resolution video adapter and monitor

CD-ROM or DVD drive

Keyboard and Microsoft Mouse or compatible pointing device

Here's a decent guide for installation:
