Personally I would not install Vista on any system below the following:
  • At least 1.5 GHz processer (dual core highly recommended)
  • 1 GB of RAM (required for everything except home basic)
  • A video card (on board video = no Vista for me)
The actual Vista Minimum requirements can be found here.

Regards,
Adam

What if I didn't meet all those requirements? I just want to see what it looks like?

If you don't meet my minimum requirements, you should still be fine. It will just run slow as long as you meet the Microsoft Vista Requirements. If you don't meet those from the link, then you won't be able to put Vista on that machine.
