Best Distro for crappy laptop?
(If you don't want to read the below paragraph, the I am just wondering which distro you think would be best for an old crappy laptop, but please read below for more info if you have time)
Hi, I have a old laptop that currently has windows 95 on it. I would like to erase the hard drive and put linux on it, but I was wondering wich distro would work best for it. It is old and crappy, it has a 3 gig hard drive, so I don't want a huge distro, but I am not too worried about having a tiny distro, up to a 1 gig or a little higher would be fine. It only has 144 mb of ram, so I want a distro that can run ok on a small amount of memory, but I don't expect excelent performance from it. It does not have a CD drive or USB ports, so that might pose a problem, but it does have a floppy drive and a Ethernet port, so I should be able to a distro installed ok, maybe with a little extra work. Any comments or suggestions would be very welcome, please don't feel afraid to post. I am a little new to the linux world, but hopefully this is not too dumb of a question.
