I gave fedora a  try once on an old MMX/233 with 256mb of ram.  took 5 
minutes to boot minutes to boot and that was without the gui enabled 
(which I might add it doesn't give you the option of not booting gui 
during the installer, or at least it didn't for me).  After that 
slackware got reinstalled and everything was happy again.
