Debian runs really well on these boxes. You need the compact set of boot
floppies. Grab the root and rescue disks from below.

<http://http.us.debian.org/debian/dists/potato/main/disks-i386/current/images-1.44/compact/>

The install manual is here.
<http://www.debian.org/releases/stable/i386/install>

I usually build these boxes with just the root and rescue disks and 
install everything else off the net.

Best of luck,

Stephen
