[nSLUG] what distro for this old machine

I need to correct myself on the hard disk and swap partition placement.
Been working with CD's too long. :)

Older drives, its best to put swap on the last chunk of space on the
drive because the access times are very quick near the center of the
disk (nearly twice the speed of having the swap on the outside tracks).

Hope this helps,
