It's gonna be hard to tun X on that machine. If it's really needed,
you will have to use blackbox or Windowmaker and even with such light
WM I'm not sure it won't lag.
As for a distro I'd say go with Debian. Very stable, secure, and it
doesn't install many unneeded things. It doesn't rely on X tools for
configuration either in case you can't use X.
Anyway I think you should try to buy some ram...
