Ive just got a sony vaio pcg c1xd, for free from a friend.

Its the perfect size for just quick browzing etc, but its very limited in resources.

Pentium II @ 400Mhz
64Mb built in sdram (noi expansion here 🙁 )
6gb hdd

What would be a good distro to stick on this machine (i have an external cd drive). Im running xubuntu on it atm but this is veeeery slow. I tried installing puppy but it wouldnt install grub properly on the disk…

Also should i replace the noisy 6gb 4200 rpm disk with a 16gb cf card? will this be slower or faster?
