NOw that I think about it, where can I get and older version or Mandrake or REdhat? ANd will they run faster than the newest versions?

http://www.vectorlinux.com/ will rock your world.

also, check out gentoo.. (www.gentoo.org) u can make it fairly small, yet so powerfull.

Vector Linux 4.0 has a small foot print. Under 650MB full install I believe.

Depends what you call a decent GUI. There is 2diskX, which is probably the smallest, as it fits on two floppy disks. Then there is BasicLinux with X, which takes up 13MB. But for a complete but lightweight distro nothing beats VectorLinux.

try damn small linux. it is very small in size (50MB) and is very portable. It is a business card size distro that boot from a cd and uses the fluxbox GUI. You could do an install if you'd like.
