    however if you plan on having some heavier applicaitons you would need at least 8GB and even that won't leave much space for data.
    Thank you for the recommendation, I will try it out. Seems like the easiest solution to me, since I'm not married to any particular distro.

    I am assuming that if the person ran "heavy applications" they would be using something other then a netbook. I imagine its for browsing the web and not much else.

    when installing Lubuntu to a 4gb partition or flash device remember and remove the swap partition so that all files will fit on the device... If you are booting from USB flash drive this will also speed up Lubuntu considerably...
