Reasoning is simple, while your celeron will run linux, the 64mb of ram probably wont allow KDE or Gnome desktops to load. xfce would work, but it can be frustrating if your totally unfamiliar with it.

Your main rig will run it fast, Ubuntu forums have great support, and its simple to install and probably the most stable I've worked with for quite some time.

Here's the page you want.


If you insist on using your older rig then I would try Damn Small Linux, here. I've never used it, but I understand they packed a lot into a tiny little distro.

Either way good luck with it and enjoy.
you can do what grey stated or you can do a knoppix distro and just boot from a cd.... i do this all the time with knoppix-std...
