Hey guys, so I have an old Celeron 500mhz machine with 192mb of ram and I've been thinking about putting linux on it. All I use it for is minor webbrowsing and IMs and I've always wanted to try out linux so why not now. Currently it's running Windows 98SE but it's a bit sluggish. So my question for you is which distro is easy to use and would run relatively fast and not take up too much ram?
I don't mind getting my hands a little dirty and doing some googling to get everything working, but I'd rather avoid it. As I said, all I need is a web browser, preferablly firefox, and an IM client with AIM, YIM, MSN, and ICQ. Also, me and my buddies sometimes use ventrilo to talk to each other while playing games and it's nice to use this old computer instead of my primary one so I dont have to hear music/game sounds while they're trying to talk; I looked on the vent site and it doesn't look like there is a linux client, but maybe theres a third party one you guys know about?
1. Old computer, 500mhz celeron 192mb ram
2. Want an easy to use and low system requirements distro of linux
3. Is there a vent client for linux?
