need a distro recommendation for my father's ancient computer.  Its a
PIII with 256 mb of ram and a 6 gig hard drive.  I tried Ubuntu but its
way to bloated for this box. was thinking of puppy but I haven't tried
it out yet on my test box at home.  Basic software requirements are
firefox, OO, and skype.

oh yeah is there a F/OSS alternative to windows messenger. My step-mom
uses it for her chat and support groups and does not want to have to
change her ID.

Thanks in advance
