Why don't you tell us what you have and what you want to do and we can make suggestions.
He did already, "a distro that can run with 48 megs of ram..." tells me that any distro should work.
alaios, if your wanting someone to just blurt out a distro... well, mandrake then.... its easy, newbie friendly.... etc.
But I'm not all about that. We have plenty of these types of threads already asked and answered in the distribution forum.
If you only tell us what I said above about 48 megs of ram, well, I'm going to give you the truth for an answer. Any distro should work for that purpose. But instead of using an older version of gnome, why don't you look into a lighter type desktop environment, like what I suggested before.
This is your choice. If you've used linux before, use the distro your most comfortable with. Your question will only generate opinions, not exact answers. Again, if you want opinions on a question like this, go browse the distro forum for those.
