As far as I am aware the one to use is http://www.coyotelinux.com/coyote.html
which is best for cable modems but the dial up is supposed to be quite ok.
it needs 12Mb ram which is why I havent installed it yet (has anyone got 12Mb+
of 30 pin simms???

Other distributions can be found @ http://www.linux.org/dist/english.html
look at the bottom of the page for small / specialist versions.

Good Luck
