Okay I run a dual boot with Debian and win98 and have a extra partition to add another, I want one that will set up my sound card right, cause I can't get Debian to do that. I want a distribution thats good on old hardware, but I think slack will be to hard and want something easier, gentoo seems like it takes to long to install programs (from what I heard). Dealing with dependencies can be a challenge in RPM based distros (I've never used those but once again thats what I heard). I would like something that only needs 1 CD to install as well.
Having it do the Hardware detecting and configuring is the important as well as installing new programs. Speed is important as well thats why I don't use windows because it is running terribly slow and always needs to be scanned for viruses and spyware
Edit- I would like one that can automaticaly detect the other OS's so i don't have to configure Grub or LILO
