I had a bunch of junk parts lying around and built 2 computers (Both 225Mhz and 128MB ram). I was new to Linux, but had already had success installing a webcam on a Linux machine (Mepis to be precise). While I liked (and still like) Mepis, these machines were too slow to run it on and they only have 500 and 850MB hard drives. I searched around for a mini-distro and found DSL. I have been playing exclusively with DSL ever since. Mepis just sits in the corner quitely and does it's job.
I love Linux because once the computer is set up I never have to worry about it. I have had the webcam running for over 6 months and have only had to reset the machine once and that was because the router died and I don't know the Linux command to reissue an IP (ifconfig something eth0).
Anyway, that's my story about how I found DSL. Eventually I will probably give the two old machines to a school (my mum is a 1st grade teacher). I have found a few educational games but I want ALOT of little games and educational packages on these machines before they go out. With a frugal install the computers should last damn near forever.
