    Check out Easy Peasy. It's a Ubuntu distribution designed for notebooks. I use it myself and it runs very well

    Easy Peasy is too resource hungry for 128MB RAM. I'm pretty sure the minimum recommendation is 512MB. You're going to need something light.

    A couple of popular lightweight distros are Antix and Puppy Linux
