Suggested OS for Compaq Armada 1592 DMT, heavily trimmed down


Would like to turn an ancient laptop into a nice typewriter, without any other applications except office, and without being told to buy a new laptop. Here are the specs:
Compaq Armada 1592 DMT
Pentium 2 200mhz
32 mb RAM
OS and applications must fit on 1.25 gb hard drive
Would like either a Windows shell to run Microsoft Office 97, or a similar office suite
Laptop is fully supported by towers, so all I need is suggestions on which distro to use and which packages to install, plus instructions on stripping extra applications out of the OS to leave just what I want.
