    What is it that you need help with? resolution or distro? If its the resolution I really cant help you, just play with it and find out its default settings. A distro.. ANY and do a minimal install. For the GUI go Blackbox, IceWM, Enlightenment. Those are small and fast.

    you should check out Vector Linux, it is a slackware based distro that is designed for older pcs and laptops...works really well on much older boxes, also damnsmalllinux is good...both I think can use fluxbox, which seems to be the faster xwm that I have used
