Install ran...

I currently have two computers, both elderly: a Pentium 4 desktop and a Pentium M laptop, both with 1GB RAM. At the moment I'm using Linux Mint 10 (Gnome) on the desktop and Linux Mint LXDE 11 on the laptop.

Linux Mint 10 is coming up to the end of it's support, so I need to do something on this computer... Ideally I want to have something with longer term support, so I don't have to faff around setting everything up again until I get around to getting a new computer with decent...
