You might like PuppyLinux. For me it realizes subliminal speeds for most small 
programs (though naturally not for Firefox). 

- http://www.puppylinux.com/download/index.html

The only reason that I don't use it is that it doesn't offer all the programs 
I need - but where's the difference between Puppy and Win3.11 in that? :) 

But I have it on a USB stick as backup system (and for the times when I want 
to experience again how computing should feel - someday I'll put /usr /var 
/lib /bin and /sbin on tmpfs, rsync on boot and shutdown and deactivate swap - 
I just need a few more Gigs of Ram). 

Best wishes,
