If Puppy did run satisfactorily, you will have trouble making this machine work unless you can find a way to increase the available RAMs.

Distros i have tried
Lubuntu-i like it but sometimes it freezes for a second(maybe becouse i use try before install)
Ubuntu-didn't even boot
AntiX-like it too. It is fast but i don't know where is doftware center so i used terminal to download software
Elive-boot time is good but it is a bit laggy
DSL-didn't even boot
Tinycoreplus-boot fast and work fast but i can't connect to wired USB internet so..
Mint-i see only loading screen and no desktop on recetly added version
Puppy-this was interesting. I liked it but pc was still slow..slower than Lubuntu
Porteus-it was a bit laggy

Maybe there is more but i have tested them and my favorite is Lubuntu and even Elive even if it was a bit laggy

Watch the videos. You might learn something. It should answer a lot of questions you may have and convince you
that AntiX is the bomb. Like I think it is, (biased opinion).

Thumbs up

I like checking out all the top distros every few years plus others or like I posted here: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...2/#post5512875

Debian has spun the most forks so wound up with a netinst as my favorite. Arch or Slackware would be my next in line for building it my way and PCLinuxos, OpenSuse, KDE, Debian or PC-BSD if I want full blown (but why stop there.)

Edit: sorry got off topic KDE &c may not be as good to make light.

I've run a lot of distro's over the last while... I was preffring a usb but settled on a live disk. More-so rewastering a puppy live disk worked for me the best...
