Re: best distro for realy old laptop
you must have an gui? if not, try FreeDOS.
if not, look here http://distrowatch.com/
choose according to description and put an old style gui onboard like the early guis used in the mid 90s.
look for guis here: http://apcmag.com/how_to_declutter_y...s_compared.htm
I was looking at the 1st link above: Tiny Core looks interesting.
You also might try compiling a special mix just for the hardware, thereby stripping it down to the barest elements necessary. Seems like a fun project for tinkering.
