Best low-spec (P2, 266MHZ, 128MB) dist for ipod interface like Amarok?

My niece hands me her WIN95 laptop and wants to run itunes. I can't do anything w/o xp and itunes, but I've heard good things about Amarok. Is it even possible?

Very few Linux distributions will run well on a computer that old. Puppy Linux would be my recommendation. (Depending on her age, there are some "Puplets" designed especially for youngsters.)
