    When i was younger I had a wrecking yard. My youngest son said then that I "resurrected" old cars. Now, I do it with PCs. the point is, I have tried connochaet and found it suitable for really old PCs down to the PII. Its downside it is takes quite a bit of post-install tweaking. If a person enjoys this, go for it! Myself, I'll go with antiX-M11-i486 and make a swap file, if necessary. A Base install and then running the script smxi is much more to my liking.
