I'm just recommending this amount of memory if you also will use other
features as well. With this you can setup larger kernel mbufs...

Every decent cisco has a min of 64MB these days and most larger routers
at least 256MB....

I think I could find a CF card with 10MB more storage for that kind  
of added functionality :) . But 256MB memory seems a bit much to me.  
I think you will only need this if you are going to have BGP4  
uplinks. Any other routing protocol should only have a very low added  
impact on the memory usage.

Kind regards,
