Is there a browser only distribution of Linux that will work on an older iMac?
Just curious. My main goal here is to have a version of Linux that will boot up to a browser (Mozilla or Firebird, most likely) so that it's easy for someone to turn on the computer and start browsing the internet. I'd really like to have something that would run Java/Flash/Shockwave as well. It would be nice, but not 100% critical that it plays sounds as well.
My problem is that it's an older iMac, so I'd like something with as little overhead as possible. Another problem is that I'm still a Linux newbie. I've installed Red Hat/Yellow Dog/Mandrake, but they're good for holding your hand while they install. I've never built a system from scratch. The iMac currently has Yellow Dog 3, but found it dead slow and unresponsive, so I'd be taking that off but still want to have the capability of dual-booting.
Is this a job for Debian, or is there another distro that I should look for?
Any ideas will be very appreciated. Thanks!
