Tinycore runs in Ram and 1GB is far more than you'll need with it.
Slax can be used with toram with about 320MB, and comes with a lot more software pre-installed than tinycore does (and can be customized with modules) and will probably have easier wireless setup and driver support and such. Though it is a Live distro, I don't know how well it does installing to the hard drive as I've never tried it, and I have never seen it used as anything but a live distro. So I can't really recommend it if you're looking for something to actually put on this machine's hard disk.
