    Ubuntu without the pretty eye candy runs quite well in low-end machines.

    if you still have doubts, you can try xubuntu, it's designed for older pcs.

    PCLinuxOS is another good choice for low end hardware I was running it on a PIII laptop with no problems, the only thing I had trouble configuring was the addon WiFi card but that wasn't a major, it works very well for what you need.

    invite always be free. no trades. remember sharing is caring.
    bt rep should be abolished.
    life is about choices and consequences. you make your choices but remember only you have yourself to blame when you realize the consequences. personal experience taught me that.

    I would also suggest trying Xubuntu. It's lighter than Ubuntu but still looks nice by default and has a lot of Ubuntu's features.

    Would it support pfsense, for a low-end pc load-balance router?
