    what distro for Old Machine

    building from LFS

    Just as a suggestion, why not try Salix 13.37 Fluxbox and choose the Basic install? The config files for the GUI are like using a text editor to write macros in Fluxbox -- quite easy once done. Really quite configurable. Slapt-get is much like apt-get if you've used Debian-based distros...
