    Assuming the processor is 486DX or better (and quite honestly, if it isn't you're wasting your time anyway) I'd recommend Tiny Core Linux:

    http://www.tinycorelinux.com/

    Which requires 48MB RAM. There is also Microcore Linux, from the same source which runs in 36MB, but if you haven't got 48MB+ then again you're probably wasting your time. Tiny Core Linux uses the FLWM window manager which, I think, by default looks a lot like win95/8. It comes with almost nothing - which you'd expect from a desktop that weighs in at just 10MB - but can be extended to include all your favourite applications.

    Alright,
    DeLi Linux looks promising.
    Thanks again for all the replies. I cant remember what the processor was, sorry. Could I connect to the internet via an ethernet cable?
    Also, I have a spare router lying around, is there a way to use that as a receiver?
