    there are many "small" distro out there
    many list are available on this forum, if you're confortable with command line, i would sugegst Gentoo... installatin might take "days" with that amount of ram BUT it'll run fast after the setup

    I'd recommend Feather Linux, purely because it uses XVESA or XFBsomethingorother, both are small (tho insecure) x servers and Im running it on a 350mhz, 64mb ram machine and its absolutely flying. Only thing is the HD install of feather linux 0.71 is borked! so download 0.70
