    Which distro?

    www.mandrakelinux.com
    www.fedora.org
    etc.

    You may find the 'newer' distros may run sluggishly on your 450 as they
    are designed to run on faster machines. You may find Mandrak a good
    beginners distro.

    Good luck.

    Or try Knoppix ( http://www.knoppix.net for info,
    http://www.knoppix.net/get.php to download it). I read somewhere that
    because it can fit on & run from a CD you can also set it up to load
    into & run from RAM-if you have enough. (You don't, but I'm certain you
    could add more.) That is supposed to significantly improve the performance.
