You could go with something like IceWM or fvmw2. I have an older laptop
150mhz and 80mg ram. I use RH 7.1, IceWM and Opera web browser and I still have
free ram. You may want to also do a very picky OS install. RH wanted to
use over a gig of my two gig hard drive just for the install. Just go
thru and pick each package you want to install.
