Installing on a very old laptop

Hi, i'm new to all this linux stuff, and i'm trying to breath some new life into an old Toshiba 3110CT laptop.

Its a P2, 128MB ram, 4GB harddrive
and from what i've read i think i'd like to go with macpup - unless anyone has reasons not to...

Now the question is, how do i do a network install?

A few years back i managed to squeeze windows xp onto this thing, but its just too slow.
It will not boot from CD or USB.

any suggestions / links / etc ??
