Link to this post 19 Mar 10

pentium 3 , 1 ghz . 386 ram.

What i done so far.
Install Lenny Base system (No Desktop).

Add to sources.list lenny backports

aptitude - Fluxbox , iceweasel , hardinfo , xserver-xorg-core xorg , pcmanfm , xterm , scite , gdebi
xarchiver , gsetroot , ksnapshot , gimp , nfs-user-server , nfs-common

deb files download and gdebi , wbar , google.chrome

pcmanfm - needed .gtkrc-2.0
-- install - tango-icon-theme
-- setup .gtkrc-2.0

setup conky , wbar
add fluxbox-theme Nuevat3k-Glacier

Solved
iceweasel
- flashplayer , download from adobe , extracted , copy to /usr/lib/iceweasel/plugins
# non-free flashplayer didn't work for me , from lenny backports

Problems are
wbar
-- click on item open it twice
-- have to refresh on boot to see background

iceweasel , google.chrome
-- seem to have trouble using menu with mouse

other known problems.
-- menu in other programs dont like to stay open without mouse button down.

Nfs file sharing
-- just haven't seem to get this to work
