The webpage I think is in 'German' so you can use a language tool to convert/view the page in English if needed.

if you want something that works with those low specs (and want more options)
something I did awhile ago but more modern than version 0.9.9

Idea you could still update it with packages


fat-free-2.16-dillo.iso-md5sum

But hasn't work on DSL pretty much come to a halt,...now that (I believe) the main dev started "TinyCore"? Hey,...there's an idea. Or Slitaz. (never tried that, myself, so can't say).

Slitaz would be possible! That's the most compact in HDD usage.

It would need less seeking that most distros.

Slitaz= The best at HDD space compactness. Makes Puppy, especially "Lupu", look like a pig lol. (Sorry, Puppy)

Puppy= Best for running in RAM.

But, I'm been thinking about trying Macpup. Wink (Puppy with E17, IIRC)

Slitaz is supposed to be something like 30mb. I wonder if "Fat Free" pup (or maybe "Bare Bones" pup) could come close to that? Now there would be an interesting project! Something "Puppy" but modern,...and less than 50mb.

I've got an install of Slitaz "cooking" on my test machine and it is small and quick.But, it's a pretty stripped down distro....Netsurf browser, few apps and a lot of the video drivers removed.Start adding stuff and the size grows pretty quick. Smile I keep a Slitaz install to play with though.
On low spec computers I usually try Mean Pup....a bit old but only 50 mb and fast.

...ah! I forgot about "Mean Pup". Wish I was good at programming and such.....that would really be a terrific project to up-date! (a hint to some of the great Puppy devs here). That would give tiny distros (like Slitaz and TinyCore) some good competition.

Unless I'm mistaken, Slitaz isn't really much lighter than Puppy. It achieves its small size by using some sort of compression system. When it runs, it has to decompress the file system and run it in memory, so it uses nearly as much memory as Puppy.
