I have gotten various VL releases to work on a variety of my personal machines:

IBM X22
PIII 800
640mb of RAM
SMC USB 802.11g wireless
VL 5.9 Standard and 5.9 Light

IBM 390E
PII 300
256mb of RAM
Netgear WG511T cardbus 802.11g wireless
VL 5.9 Light

IBM 240
Celeron 300
320mb of RAM
Netgear WG511T cardbus 802.11g wireless
VL 5.8 Standard and 5.9 Standard (via the 'surrogate machine' method) and, thanks to uelsk8s' instructions, I was able to install 5.9 Light directly from the .iso via Grub.....(5.8 Standard and 5.9Standard are too slow on this machine.......5.9 Light works GREAT).

IBM 600E
PII 333
288mb of RAM
Netgear MA401 PCMCIA 802.11b wireless
VL 5.8 Standard and 5.9 Standard. Currently using 5.9 Light as 5.8 Standard and 5.9 Standard are too slow on this machine.....

Sony Vaio PCG-TR2
Pentium M 1ghz
1gb of RAM
Built-in wireless 802.11g
VL5.9 Standard

Compaq M300
PIII 600
320mb of RAM
Netgear WG511T cardbus 802.11g (5.9 Standard) or  Netgear MA401 PCMCIA 802.11b (5.8 Standard) wireless

Everything works on the above laptops except the scroll wheel on my USB mouse with the Sony Vaio.

I will post printouts with more complete specs when I have the chance.....

We have also installed VL 5.8 Standard on at least 30 different desktop machines (Dell, Gateway, Compaq, etc.) for our Reno Cigar Lions Computers for Kids program. I'll try to post specs on as many as I can as we proceed.....

More to follow.....
