    Advice on wich to install


    I have a ten year old pc. That i would like to be able to use.
    Mayby as a firewall or just for testing purposes. It really doesn' t
    matter as long as it has some linux distro in it.
    So i need suggestions on which distro to install on it.
    The important thing is that it doesn't require lot of RAM
    i have only 250 MB on it if i remember correctly. ( it is currently collecting dust ). And it has been a whilesince i have used it.

    Thanks for your suggestions guys..

    There are a few distros that I can think of that might work there.
    Debian, Slackware or antiX all should wok nicely.

    I agree with JD, AntiX should work well for you. SliTaz, Tinycore, and TinyMe might also be options.
