This is very old. I can install any version of Windows NT with only 8 mb ram.

Seriously, which of the newer betas do you expect to run on 8 MB of RAM?

Memphis or Windows NT 5 with editing txtsetup.sif or hacked operating systems

Memphis could be made run, I guess, but I believe there's no way to get NT 5.0 to run with 8MB. I guess the threshold is somewhere between 12 and 16 MB (the absolute minimum), but I don't know for sure. NT 4.0 might still run with 8 MB, but just don't expect it to be anywhere near usability.

Okay, if you mean it works, then install NT 5.0.

Not that I have a problem with NT5 builds, but a Win3x build with
Calmira XP would probably still run quite fast on that laptop, or
whatever other Calmira build that takes your fancy...
With all available updates & tweaks it could still be quite usable,
even as far as the internet is concerned, if that's your intention...

@jedrekk
NT5 1906 is on the AbyssUnderground server, yes. No way you can install XP (even a nLited) version with 8MB of RAM. I think 16~18MB is the absolute threshold although the setup requires 64MB which however can be bypassed.
As KenOath suggested, Win3.x with Calmira would probably be the best bet for this machine.
