Smile which linux distrobution for old pc's

Hi all.

Thanks for the welcome.
I have been using Karmic for four months now and have received lots of help from #ubuntu-za on freenode. I love Karmic.

I have a few friends with old pentium 2 and 3 pc's that are too slow for ubuntu. Which Linux distro can I use for them that will work on say a p2 with 2g hdd and 64m ram. It must be user friendly as they are not computer experts. Nor am I actually. But I can do the basics.
Your help will be much appreciated.
Thank You.
