Unhappy Looking for a light-weight distro


hullo guys,
thanks for the nice work you are doing.
Am looking for a lightweight, fully equiped and real-linux with GUI; linux distro that can suitably run on my old celeron box (500 mhz with 128 mbs). Currently Iam running debian 4.1 but i do not feel my box flying. so please help me if you have any ideas.

Oh, almost forgot- Am looking for something I can install not something that will run on my usb pen or cd-rom like Damn Small linux.
I don't mind if you gave a few links also.
Thank you- in advance
