Best Linux/Solaris OS for thin client/Sun Ray 100

Hello, I was wondering if anyone has any instructions or guides that'll help me to setup a thin client server for a Sun Ray 100. The thin client displays, but I am a bit clueless on how to setup a server for it. Will it be possible to create a Sun Ray Server with these basic specs: Athlon XP 1800+, 2x256mb,geforce 4 mx420. My knowledge with linux is limited, but I've had experience with Ubuntu and Zenwalk. I welcome any suggestions or better solutions. I plan to use the setup for my mom for browsing and other basic usage.

You'll find the Sun Ray Server Software installation documentation for Linux (RHEL and SLES) and Solaris here:

I'm not sure 512MB can provide a usable system though.

OH thanks, I was looking for docs. Okay. that'll be fine, I'll see if about upping the ram as soon as I can get started.

Edit: Agh..there's a similar older thread that already exists. See people this is why you should do more thorough searches. -_-
