sluggish, aging pc seeks hot young linux installation
December 20, 2005 10:00 AM Subscribe
I have an old pc. Celeron 600mhz processor, 376mb ram. The ram is maxed out (I believe) and the overhead of microsoft's anti-spyware combined with AVG antivrus, along with XP sp2, have slowed the machine to a crawl.
Is there a way to speed things up that is compatible with quicken 2004 and will leave me protected from net nasties?
I thank you, hive-mind.

Or, barring that, can someone recommend a lite version of linux that will dual boot, likes older machines, and is easy to install?
