    A word of warning LFS can be hard work but it is well worth it. Your unsserstanding of linux will greatly increase because of it

    Check out Vector Linux. I've been running Vector Linux 5.1.1 SOHO on my 900MHz machine for quite some time now. It really doesn't get much faster than this, and I love its Slackware foundation but with more newbie friendliness than pure Slackware.

    How about optimizing your distro before trying another one? Fedora CAN be fast, if you are willing to put some extra effort into it. If you are not interested in that, then I'd second to use Arch. Not slower than LFS or Gentoo and easier to set up.

    This thread is over a year old and I don't see any more usefulness coming out of it. Locked.
