266Mhz laptop, 128MB RAM, 4GB HD
Will Ubuntu run alright on such a low end laptop? I'm doing some experiments for school and heard that Ubuntu and Vector are the ways to go for poorer hardware as long as I run a lightweight desktop manager like Fluxbox or XFCE.

Also are either of those desktop managers installed on Ubuntu?

Try the liveCD. I have a lower end laptop and it runs Ubuntu fine. If the LiveCD works, the main distro should work as well.

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
