Hi David,

Try some 12.04 LTS based version. I have been able to install for
example 'Precise Gnome Classic Tweaks' from either of the tarballs


into a Compaq with 256 MB RAM and a 400 MHz

using Plop to redirect the booting from the CD drive to a USB pendrive
with the One Button Installer. See

You can probably also install

LXLE and Xubuntu 12.04 and Bodhi Linux from the tarballs provided with
the One Button Installer.

But I could not install Lubuntu 13.10, probably because some driver was
not working with such old hardware.

Good luck :-)
