gui with 64mb


Hi I am looking for a linux distro that will run a gui (I think its called KDE ?) with 64mb of ram

I tried knoppix (i know its a live cd) and get the error that it needs at least 128 mb of ram.

I have a fairly old system doing nothing, so i would use it to learn linux. But as I'm used to windows, a gui would be a soft landing into linux world.

Any help would be much apprecaited.

regards

Possibly 'Damn Small Linux', but 64 MB is tight to squeeze a system including GUI into.
If poss, I'd strongly recommend more RAM or using cmd line only ...

This will run like a pregnant snail. You're better off using a more lightweight WM like Enlightenment, Fluxbox, XFCE, etc...
