Experience welcome viability xubuntu on Dell Latituder CPi 128MB


Have been given an old Dell Laptop Latitude CPi D266xt with only 64MB memory resident but upgrading to 128MB. It has single 1.1 USB port, but have 4 point USB hub & I have 1GB USB Flash drives. I wish to enter Linux Scene with xubuntu installed. Is this a viable set up? any experience appreciated?

You might be able to run it, but I doubt you'd like it with that configuration. You need a decent hard drive, and 128MB is probably a bare minimum.

I think the best suggestion is to junk that machine, and get something new.
