    looking for a small linux with a GUI and low system requirements


    i am looking for a linux distro with a gui and low system requirements i am wanting to install this on an EXTREMELY old laptop here are the specs

    -75MHz pentium 1
    -20MB Ram
    -5.5GB hard drive

    the model of it is AT&t globalyst 250

    i have tried damn small linux on it and it works but has crappy picture quality but it ran at a decent speed considering the specs let me know another distro that would work for me
