Best Distro for this OLD system?

Hey everyone. I recently acquired a PII 350mhz 64MB RAM 3.2GB HDD computer, and I want to install Linux on it. I need your suggestions as to which distro would install the easiest and run at reasonable speed. All I need to run on this machine is a lightweight window manager, and some OpenGL screen savers. This computer will NOT be connected to a network. Any suggestions would greatly be appreciated.

Slackware, Debian, Gentoo, DSL any of those. And any windows manager will do - as long as it's not KDE or Gnome.
