    If you're specifically looking for a small distro, I'd look at the "Older Computers" section of the "Which Distro?" thread here:

    When i started i really liked ubuntu it was a very nice way to get introduced to linux and it was different enough interface compare to mandrivia that it made it interesting and encouraged me to explore the os much more.

    I have an older machine that is sometimes difficult to get stuff to run on. It's now running a copy of Xubuntu. I find it fast, light and works out of the box (for me anyway!)

    Try Puppy Linux. You might be able to use Morphix. Debian Live is a possibility if you know what you're doing.
