I would put either Fluxbox or Openbox, which is based off of Blackbox. I'm not sure if BB is still being developed. If possible, add more ram to be able to run Xfce or LXDE on it.

I am using a combination of antiX and fluxbox window manager. I also am working on making a swap partition unless I get more ram.

I got tinycore to run but I was looking for something with a little more functionality. That's where you guys come in. I'm willing to try many different distros as long as they can be run from a live cd or flash drive. (I use flash drives currently for tests along with a floppy that enables USB booting on this old thing). Any suggestions are appreciated!

Thanks!
