Good O.S. for older laptop to run beside win xp

I need to select a distro for a friends older laptop which is runnin wim xp pro. They want to keep win, but need a second O.S. cause it's soooo slow. It's an HP with 1.8GHz single core Pentium, 1 GB ram pc-100 style. Has dvd burner, built in wifi and bluetooth. I need it to support this stuff, plus be more snappy cause it's getting old and Win XP Pro is bogging it down. Please help. Thank you. :)
