Look at PcPuppyOs, or use regular Puppy with the FireFox pet, Skype pet, and Open Office or Oxygen Office .sfs files.  Both have Gaim or similar for chat.

PcPuppyOs: http://pcpuppyos.com/

Most of the pet packages and .sfs files for Puppy can be found at: http://puppylinux.ca/

The other one to look at is Fire Hydrant, it has several versions: http://www.ttuuxxx.com/

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
