Another What distribution Question?


[link to this post]
 
I am after a very lightweight distro to use on an old Asus eee701.

My Simple Requirements are to connect to WPA2 wireless, browser, bittorrent and VNC server.

It appears the original OS as supplied does not support WPA2.

I have tried CrunchBang, the live CD looks good, but it won't install.

About 12 years ago I would have described myself my Linux knowledge as "expert" but I have not touched it since, so I am totally out of date.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Linux Puppy

I messed about with this a few years ago on a broken laptop (battery failure and HD was dodgy)... boy is it fast - simple to use to.
