My coworker DJ is a puppy fan.  He had Puppy on a flash drive and lost the drive 
while at lunch a few years ago.  I suggested he call Luther and hang up some 
signs to report his lost puppy.

+1 for Puppy linux
Meuon helped me set up a handful of installs on 800mhz "thin clients" running on 
512mb CF cards back in 2008. I was using them to run a Political Campaign Office 
and had a Spreadsheet, WP app, Email, and Browser, and Skype running on each 
machine. They could network print and over 5,000 campaign calls were placed from 
them using skype.

Not a single crash or Hiccup. 800mhz VIA processors with 256mb ram and a 512mb 
CF card. Pretty Damned Impressive.

Puppy is your friend.

I use Xubuntu on me eeepc 900a (atom).  Once you get past the annoying "low
