All it's going to be doing is responding to Remote Desktop Services user license requests, nothing else.

Can it be 600mb RAM, fairly low CPU and fairly low disk I/O speed?

Thanks.

Consider 2008 R2 is x64. As you made the question, I assume you are thinking about using an old box. If this is it, old boxes might/could be x86.
BTW: yes it should be enough even thought 600MB (not mb) are low even for booting a 2008 R2.

The question is not if I think it is sufficient or not. The question is if it does run with (only) 600MB. The answer is: yes. That said, the more memory you have, the better it is.
I boot successfully a 2008 R2 with (only) 512MB. It takes a century compared to a state-of-the-art server with plenty of RAM. But it works.
