Distro help


I'm interested in getting Linux but I don't know which distribution to get. I want to run X-windows, if possible, but all the distributions I've seen require at least 64 Megs of RAM or more when running X-Windows, and I only have 32. Do you know any distributions that would run full speed with X-Windows on this computer:

Pentium MMX 200 MHZ
32 MB RAM
Matrox Millenium
3 GB HD

Thanks,
ZidanaX

Not full speed but Vector will work with a lightweight window manager like fluxbox. Or ZipSlack, if you've got a DOS partition.
