Need Distro Option


I am setting up a dedicated server for UT2004, and I need a distro to install on it. It is a pretty slow box, like 400mhz, but works fine for what I want it to do. Fedora is to heavy, I have allready tried it. Please give me some suggestions!

You can check out www.distrowatch.com or the various distro-specific forums right here at LQ. Off the top of my head I would suggest Slackware or possibly Debian and Dam* Small Linux.

I suggest Debian/GNU Linux being easy to administer and because of it's high quality packages.

CAnt DO Slackware, Debian because they do not support Siemens Network Cards like Fedora does.
