puppy, dsl, tiny linux,...
Or install a minimal debian, and add what you need, just use a lightweight windowmanager.

Yeah may be OP was referring to the thread that you mentioned.
There was mention of Austrumi Linux. Something I would like to recommend.
I did not find a distro that is so small and still so much to offer.
Just read on Distrowatch that some NetSecL kinda distro is out that is based on Slac and uses Xfce. Not too bad time to try it out, isn't it?

I suggest Tinycore using the tcz extensions for low-ram
( http://www.tinycorelinux.com/concepts.html )

It runs fast on my 160MB Toshiba 7000CT and it's up-to-date; 1.4.3 just released yesterday.
