There are distros optimized for machines with limited resources. Best place to start might be distrowatch.

Suggestion: Breakup the run-on sentence to make it easier for us to read.

Lightbulb Re: Traffic shaping

If making your own router is what you are after. Freesco is the way to go. It runs with as little as 8MB of ram and will run off a floppy. It is based on "$i$co" routers. It will do what you are wanting to do. Just Google freesco.

i agree with pixelanny. Distrowatch is the place to go. I navigated through it and went to DSL which should work well on your old computer. Just select one of the mirrors and it will start the download of the iso file

Distro Watch has a lot of distros on the page.

There are some distros on there that are meant to be used on systems with little resources.

If you're a newbie when it comes to Linux, you might want to check out VectorLinux or Slackware Linux , both work really well on systems with low resources.

I can obviously tell that your English is not that good, so please bear with us that speak it as a Native language, we tend to get a little impatient with those that aren't as fluent. But I do agree, try to break up the run-on sentences, it does make it easier for us to read (take if from an English Teacher).

As a side note, generally people on the forum don't respond well to "put a link up", it's better to rephrase what you need into the form of a question, or just more polite. Not a command. So, "Could you please put a link up for ..." would get more responses than "Put a link up"... Just a word of advice.
