My laptop has 256MB too and while earlier versions wouldn't install at all, gutsy (was alpha6 iirc) now just takes a day ;)

Why not using the alternate CD for configuration with limited amount of memory ? This uses a text-based installer, and does not require a lot of memory (128 Mb is definitely enough, maybe 64 would do, not sure though, since I have never ubuntu on this configuration). You can also try the server install.

Ubuntu should be perfectly usable with 256 Mb, once installed. Firefox is always a problem, unfortunately, but a basic desktop (with a few removed applets) takes much less than 100 Mb on Gutsy (I noticed gutsy takes less space so far).
