My personal favorite:


This is a very clever lightweight respin of Slackware and Linux-Live 
that is at the perfect balance point between a full heavyweight distro 
like Ubuntu and something super-stripped-down like DSL. It ships with 
both OOo and Firefox.  Everything about  it just  works, including its 
very slick HD install option. The wireless support is pretty good, too. 
I am setting up a lab at the nonprofit I am working with using PII and 
low-end Celeron-class boxes, and they love it. Give it a go. You wont be 
sorry. :-)
