What's a good distro for a old slow Sony Vaio.
I have an old Sony Vaio ( PCG-Z505SX) I use only when I travel on my motorcycle. It's very small and light, perfect for what I use it for. Problem is, its a PII 366 w/192mb RAM. I currently have Windows2000 installed, but it runs very slow with anti-virus & firewall software. It takes 4 minutes to completely start up.
I was hoping to find a lite distro, that will run at a reasonable speed. I am a relative noob, so good hardware detection is a must. I use a Intel PRO/100 pcmcia nic card, and a Linksys wireless card (Broadcom chipset). I assume the Intel card won't be a problem, and would purchase another wifi card if need be to work with a distro I like.
Any advice would be appreciated. I had to order a bootable pcmcia CR ROM on eBay, and it should be here in a couple days. I currently use Mandriva and open SUSE, but I don't think either will run well on this laptop.
