pentium 2 - 400 mhz

i'd like to know which one of these two distribution: Slackware 10.1 or Mandrake 10.0, should i install on my

Pentium 2
400 mHz
6Gb HD

any suggestions? the installation will be long, so i'd like to know as soon as possible which one I'd better install.

The main usage of this linux box, will be a storage server for my home. Do you think that a hd of 160 gb will be supported on this old machine?

thanks for answering fast!

see you all

I would go for Slack but then again that's what I'm using now and I've never tried Mandrake. The good thing is is that you can use the vanilla kernel and harden that seeing as it's a server. And it's probably easier to configure for that kind of thing.
