What's The Best Livecd Distro For Use With 128mb Ram?


Hi,

I Have A Old 1.3 Ghz, 128 Mb Ram Machine And I Am Looking For A Linux Distro [Preferrably One That Has Both Livecd And HD Installable Versions] Knoppix Fits The Bill But It Isn't Compatable With A Conexant Winmodem [HSF] Thats In It. What Would Be Another Distro That I Could Use? [Preferrably Having An Easy To Use [By A Newbie] Unionfs Implementation So That I Can Install Software, etc.]

Thanks,

Ben

DamnSmallLinux or Puppy would work with that much RAM, but I don't think you're going to get a LiveCD that has Winmodem support out of the box
