Question Linux on an old Gateway Solo 2500


Good Morning

I am looking to put a distro of Linux on an old Gateway Solo 2500:

CPU Pentium II 333 MHZ
SCREEN 12.1 inch HPA SVGA; Resolution: 800 x 600; Color Depth: 262,000 colors (18-bit)
VIDEO NeoMagic NM2160 (MagicGraph 128XD) with 2 MB integrated RAM
NETWORK CARD SMC 8040TX (PCMCIA)
HARD DRIVE 20GB (IBM DKLA 24320)
RAM 64 MB
SOUND NeoMagic NMA 2
FLOPPY (internal)
CDROM 8/20x Panasonic UJDA 110 (internal)
MOUSE The Solo 2500 comes with a touchpad

I am wanting to find a light linux version to turn the laptop into a digital frame. I am hoping someone out there can help.

Thanks
