I have an old Thinkpad A21M running on 128Mb. Rather slow but works just
fine otherwise. I also tested against Xubuntu and found that the
standard version runs just as fast, and in some cases faster than
xububuntu. In additiona, you get all of the standards bells & whistles
of Ubuntu in the process. Download and install using the Alternate CD,
then install in text mode. Then when you get a chance, add more memory
as advised.

Re cheap memory: I'm finding that the older memory modules are becoming
more expensive than the latest & greatest.
