    Anyone got any decent suggestions for a lightweight distro for use with an old P100 laptop? Just want to be able to use it to browse the web.

    Slackware is probably the easiest to use. Just keep the services you want to run (http, identd, pcmcia, etc) and turn or to a minimum to conserve on memory use. on the other hand you can just use a bootable CD..I like ubuntu irs pretty good...for a nice small distro "damsmalllinux is perfect for that p100...DSL

    here is a list of bootable CD Linux distro's hope it can help out...:)

    Doh, tdinc beat me to it. I was going to suggest Slackware as well, and a backup of DSL. :p

    mind reader! hehe

    Hmmm, looks like two things to look into... Time to finally play with linux a bit more in depth.
