Light desktop distribution
I have Old laptop with 256Mb RAM and 30Gb hard disk.
So I am looking for a linux distribution which will work on that laptop good and smooth.
User need an internet and for some documents, nothing else.
And it must be a desktop like windows something.
I tryed puppy linux but it is not for installation on hard disk.
I tryed Lubuntu, but it is to heavy, doesn't work ok.
So is there some distro which will work ok and it is installed on hard disk?
Because winXp works, it is a litle slow but works ok.

A minimal Debian or Slackware install might suit your needs.
Start with a base, then add whatever lightweight apps that you need.

In agreement with jayd512, I'd recommend a minimal base-install only with Arch, Debian, or Slackware, then installing just what you want or need or want on top of that. That way you are control of your distro.oz

AntiX, Crunchbang, or SliTaz are good options for low ram systems.Registered Linux user #526930
