633MHz? much more than mine (550MHz). This is a dream processor for me.
128MB? good. I usually use 168MB (maxi) with xorg. xvesa would be less RAM. Put a 100MB SWAP on your HDD.
10GB? Huge HDD.. like mine.
So, load CoreLinux (with Xvesa) from www.tinycorelinux.net
and your PC has linux and will react like a space shuttle.
I recommend you log in the forum of TinyCoreLinux and ask for help.
Only 1 thing: please take time and keep patience.. you will achieve.. but you have to stick to this topic.. except you leave in Stuttgart and come to my home for the installation together within 2 hours.
