the laptop is pentium 2 233, with 32 megs of ram. 4 gb of hdd space, and a dead internal battery so the clock always resets
I tried taking it apart to fix the internal battery, but couldn't find the stupd thing
If i would add more ram, it wouldn't be too bad... but i only use it for a little bit of development and testing from time to time. And its hard to find smalll doses of laptop ram... i don't really think i need more than 128.
Anyway, i downloaded tinySofa linux last night, it looks like it will hit the nail on the head for me. 350 megs with about everything i needed from knoppix and _no_ default desktop :P

For an experianced user I think that suse/mdk/rh are "harder" to isntall.. because you have the problem of all the silly newbie friendly aplications that mess up that config that you so lovinly created etc. gentoo on the other hand is a peice of cake.. you make a file and no silly aplication is going to come along and write its own over the top of it.
now, when this little baby is released i think it will put an end to all the arguments such as "i love gentoo but its so hard to isntall"

really, the people that get all cought up in gentoo being impossible tried to shortcut or not read the handbook, you can folow it step by step and easily have a working distro. also, many of those that claim gentoos install to be so difficult havent actualy given it a real shot, not jsut booting live cd, but seriously trying to performing an install.

Gentoo has a very well handbook,so it is not that hard. LFS book is also clear enough. But it was very diffucult to install/use freebsd for me.
after 2 days,i dumped it and reinstalled my GentooHave a nice day
