I had a thinkpad with about 128mb of ram and Xubuntu ran awesome on it. It still couldn't handle swf's (youtube) on the internet but, it handled email and basic stuff perfectly.

Alright, but do any of them come with the drivers for Broadcom 802.11b/g WLAN wireless chip? I really don't want to have to go through the trouble of having rip it from Windows, etc.

hello happypenguin
ı have one suggestion about your problem if you want.
i think you should install #!crunchbanglinux .
it's based on ubuntu and it use openbox.In my opinion it will be good choice for you but may be it will be hard in first installation but openbox is very heavy desktop manager.
