I just installed VL light 6.0 to an ancient FSC Lifebook e330 laptop (P2-233mhz, 160mb ram 6.5gb hard disk). To be honest I'm really impressed about vector linux's performance. Including the fact that I got the pcmcia-WLAN working out of the box, and usb-memory sticks mount automatically via VL-hot as does the 8gb CF-card on pcmcia adapter.
To the date this the most polished and userfriendly low-resource linux that I've come across with.
Keep up the awesome work developers.
