Suggested OS for ASUS tower


Another older-ish system needs a good Linux distro, we've been going through a magazine and the internet and frankly, neither of us knows enough to make an educated choice. We would like to put it in a ready-made partition, allow dual-booting, and to NOT put it online. All support will come from other computers. We'd prefer an older, stable, more or less bug-free distro, and we're leaning heavily towards Debian, Sabayon, PC Linux OS, or even Haiku just for kicks. Also, we'd like them to be precompiled, for the sake of simplicity.
Here are the specs:
ASUS A7V motherboard
Athelon 950 mHz processor
786 mb ram at 133 mHz
100 gb total in hard drive
20 gb boot ATA hard drive
