I suspect the minimum RAM requirement you note is for system RAM not flash RAM. Many IOS images are compressed, so their file size will double when loaded plus you need to account for RAM to allow the IOS to function.
As for flash RAM, if the image will fit at all, you should be able to load it onto flash RAM (assuming the space isn't used by other files).
Much overlap with other posters. As Collin notes, some images, for instance those provided as TARs, can be decompressed when loaded into flash. Typical router IOS images decompress when loaded into system RAM.
I'm not familar with the device you note, so its possible different rules apply, although the "MZ" in "c5400-is-mz.124-23.bin" appears like a typical router compressed IOS image.
