From Apple's Mac OS 8 Installation Guide:

To install Mac OS 8, your computer must have
- a PowerPC or 68040 (including the 68LC040) microprocessor
- at least 8 MB of RAM (16 MB recommended)

Note: Computers that are upgraded with a PowerPC or 68040 processor card but still have 68030 (or earlier) processors that are accessed during startup are not supported.

To use Mac OS 8 a computer must have at least 8 MB of RAM (random-access memory).
If your computer has less than 16 MB of built-in RAM, you must use virtual memory.
(Mac OS 8 automatically turns on virtual memory when you install it.)
To use the Internet applications provided with Mac OS 8,
your computer must have at least 20 MB of RAM,
either built-in or by using virtual memory.
