Somebody I know dropped off a computer with 256mb DDR1 ram and win xp on it. Its an HP oem machine. He thought I know a bit about computers so I will be able to make something of it. He wants to use it as a office computer or something..

Anyways I don't want to spend too much time on this and was just wondering which linux might work best on this machine. Also as i don't have a cd writer I need something that can install from usb.

Just installed debian stable and it sits pretty on the desktop at 130mb of ram so that could be another option.
