light distros for older machines - any recommendations?

Hi all,

I used to use Crunchbang on all of my old Thinkpads, but sadly, Crunchbang is now extinct. I wept the day it closed down--it was a great distro and the install was flawless.

But now I'm on the hunt for something else. Crunchbang is getting to the point that I'm getting some errors on upgrades.

Any recommendations? I tried Linux Lite, but it was a total bomb for installing.
