Suggestions for Small Xwin?


I was wondering if anyone has an suggestions an xserver and/or window mangers that are very light and need very few resources. I have trustix installed on an old p100 with 16MBs of RAM and would like to play with any old xwin server on it. So any suggestions(other than buy a new computer) are welcomed.
TIA

i run blackbox very well on a p200. maybe something even lighter though, such as fvwm2 or maybe the default twm?

Hi

Take a look at ion, it's very small and mainly navigated by
hitting keycombinations, though the mouse is supported in
the windows. But for better looks i use blackbox as well.
good luck
