No - text based instalator (smaller one) needs 32 megs of RAM to run.
But even if it would run on 8MB i won't probably work - 486 is a VERY
old computer, it cannot run modern distributions or programs, try
installing some old Slackware or Red Hat (probably 6.2) but I don't know
if it will work, for sure you need oldish kernel (2.2) an libc instead
of glibc, maybe XFree86 3.x if you need to run X but it probabli wont
go. FreeBSD would work as an client (textbased terminal, or simple X
terminal) on such hardware.
