I've just installed Vector Linux Light on my resurrected 2002 PC. It flies on 1gb of RAM!
Compared to the previously installed Ubuntu Hardy Heron, the PC had been mothballed a while, it seems fantastic.
I really wanted a distro to learn about Linux on and the friendly support available in this forum really swung my decision to go with VL.
There's a couple of issues that I haven't resolved yet.
1. VL defaulting to the onboard sound card not my SB 5.1. I just found a "HOWTO make one soundcard default" which I think should work, I'll try tonight.
2. The LXPanel menu is blank if I position the panel on the top, fine at the bottom or side positions. Has anyone else experienced this and know how to resolve this?
