Good info to know... that does make the search harder. I just hate 
tossing good mem when you can run so many services on those sub giga 
hertz machines (not to mention as a light weight desktop).

Speaking of which, I was playing with a live cd called elive 
(http://www.elivecd.org/) last night. Comes with enlightenment and 3d 
accelerated nvidia drivers out of the box. It boots to a very nice 
looking desktop if you like eye candy. Worth checking out if you want a 
break from kde and gnome. And its Debian based! For kicks, I installed 
tux racer with apt and played that on a live cd system.
