Thanks for the distrowatch link. I read that over and decided to try Ubuntu. HOWEVER! it needs 4.4 gig to install and my little EeePC only has 2 gig.

Are they talking about RAM size or hard drive space? (I do not know.) I have a version of Ubuntu that fits just fine on a single cd-rom that surely holds less than one GBytes.
I run CentOS 5 on a machine that has 2 Pentium 3 550 MHz processors and 512 Meg of RAM and that runs fine. I find it difficult to believe Ubuntu takes more than CentOS 5. Do you have less than 2 GBytes spare hard drive space?
