Go with Ubuntu-8.04.02 if your installing it-it should auto-detect your broadband connection and is like windows.
If running a liveCD-most including Ubuntu will run alot slower due to Gnome/KDE eating your RAM.
Instead use Wolvix-Hunter, Goblinx-2.7 Mini/Micro/Standard/XFlash, Damn-Small-Linux, Feather, etc.
Most of the smaller distro's that use XFCE4, LXDE, Fluxbox, etc will run alot faster live than any with Gnome/KDE.
Puppy is eccentric if you ask me and has issues.
The better distro's should auto-detect your DSL/Broadband connection.
