720x480 Resolution to TV?

Is there a distro that can output a 720x480 signal through the S-video output of an old PC that will be hooked up to a TV (and stereo system) in my exercise room?

The PC in question is an Athlon 1.2Ghz machine that came with Windows ME and a TNT2 video card. I'd like to hook it up to the TV in the above fashion so I can stream internet radio stations while I exercise. Local radio sucks and so does WinME.

I just got done trying Freespire on this PC yesterday. Lowest resolution it can output is 1024x768, which leaves important buttons on the setup screens OFF screen so I can't finish the setup process.



distro, resolution, tv
