Ok this is more for my education than for actual usage, I am looking for a good distro that works at this low level. Puppy didn't take while dsl installed but had a lot of problems too, Now I don't need the live CD thingy for two reasons: if it doesn't take then I can just return it to window98se with the restore disk and the ram is so low that it is very hard to install from the live CD whereas installing from the CD directly frees the ram, in fact I don't need all the drivers either since I intend to try quite a few distros getting the feel of the distros and the comparison between them, all recommendations welcome, thanks

Two to try, Anti-X Mepis7 and PCLinuxOS TinyFlux. Both use Fluxbox window manager and have legacy kernels which do a good job of recognizing older hardware.

Why don't you just put more RAM in it? That's your problem.
