Thanks for the question.

For Ubuntu: Desktop install requires at least 256MB of RAM and 3GB of available hard drive space.
Server install requires at least 64MB of RAM and 500MB of available hard drive space.

For Kubuntu:Desktop install requires at least 256MB of RAM and 3GB of available hard drive space.
Server install requires at least 64MB of RAM and 500MB of available hard drive space.

For Xubuntu: To run the Desktop CD (LiveCD + Install CD), you need 128 MB RAM to run or 192 MB RAM to install. The Alternate Install CD only required you to have 64 MB RAM. To install Xubuntu, you need 1.5 GB of free space on your hard disk.
Once installed, Xubuntu can run with 64 MB RAM, but it is strongly recommended to use at least 128 MB RAM.

I hope this helps.
