Lightweight Media Distro, anyone?

Sitting in my basement room, there’s a beautiful, ancient Gateway laptop (circa 2000). It came with Windows Mistake Edi–I mean, Millenium Edition, has a Pentium III Celeron processor, and a whopping 64MB of RAM.

When I got it a few years ago, I was really excited–it’s my first personal computer. Since then, and two laptops later, it’s fallen a bit out of favor (seriously–what can you do in ME that you can’t in XP? If it was 98 it would be a DOS gaming station. But ME?) But now that I’ve learned about Linux, and started reading KMandla, I know that it’s good for quite a few things. So I’ve decided to turn it into a Jukebox–load up a lightweight distro, fill the HDD with music, and rock out.

But I really can’t make up my mind about the distro. Xubuntu, Fluxbuntu and Puppy all want too much RAM. Ubuntu GTK 1.2 Remix‘s installer isn’t quite…stable…Does this leave DSL, and DSL alone?

    Would Slitaz not be a suitable solution?
