    Maybe you can try Ubuntulite but I don't think it's a very good idea. Puppy Linux would be awesome, though.

    Highly unlikely. 7.10 & 8.04 need 384 mb ram to run and older ubuntu versions needed 256 mb ram. If you want linux, try Damn small linux - I think even puppy linux would struggle on that, unless you can find more ram, nearly anything will struggle.

    I've run BREEZY ubuntu on that ram and even smaller. Don't know where you could get that iso anymore, though.

    Besides Puppy, damn small linux and delilinux would be good. Delilinux would run real well.
