    Try DamnSmallLinux. (I know you can install that on hard-disc.)

    ubuntu is supposed to be easy to use

    I like Suse but that cause novell support it - might be a bit resource hungry on pentium 1's thou

    Second on the DamnSmallLinux. That or some other Knoppix Variant. Ubuntu is nice, but not as nice on a small HDD.

    G13man: I'm finding Solaris a bit of a learning experience. It's a bit slow on my hardware (maybe I don't have enough RAM)
    It actually comes with StarOffice, which is based on OpenOffice so I'll use that until I can figure out how to install OpenOffice proper.
