with the amount of ram you have, need a distro that doesn't use gnome, kde or xfce desktop. there are serveral debian and slackware based distros that have lightweight desktops that will work with your hardware. Most ubuntu and fedore based light distros still tend to be on the slow side. if you want to stick with puppy try using xvesa settings. to boot usb on a computer that dosen,t support it, plop boot manager,s plpbt.bin booted from grub will do the job.
