    I also didn't like 8.04 so much. Instead Xubuntu 9.10 feels much faster and installed even a machine that I didn't get 8.04 to work. I really recommend Xubuntu 9.10.

    Have you considered making an altered LiveCD based off of an Ubuntu LiveCD? Just take out some programs you don't want, and put in some programs/settings you want. If you don't use OpenOffice, for example, then just remove that for space. That should free up plenty.

    Or, if the comp has a DVD drive, just add a program or programs like mentioned above, and then just burn the resulting larger ISO file to a DVD instead of CD.

    1GB of memory is plenty for anything I can think of, unless you are doing video editing or graphics work.

    I know its not Ubuntu but you might try DSL (Damn Small Linux)
    DSL runs great on P.O.S. Machines. And its a pretty neat little distro.
    Avoid the Gates of Hell. Use Linux.

    Actually, yeah. I was wondering how to rig up something like that. What programs are the best/easiest for that sort of thing.

    One thing I have noticed, is that Live DVD's seem to run slightly smoother than Live CD's. So I am using that now.
