X will work but gnome and kde won't. Lightweight window managers such as
icewm, fvwm, and wmaker should work. Consider running in 8 bit colour
mode until you get more ram. Firefox might work.
Any distro should work, but a more customizable distro will work better.
Consider slackware, crux, or debian. Gentoo will work, but I would get
tired of the compile times.
