[lug] Small Linux for Laptop

I recently bought a cheap but old laptop to use at school (a Toshiba
Satellite 400cs, if it matters) that only has 16M of RAM, a 75Mhz Pentium
processor, ~1 Gb HDD, no CD drive, and now a PCMCIA ethernet card.
Problem is, when I tried to install KRUD 7.1 on it (with nfs), I anaconda
told me that I didn't have enough memory to install.  I should have
expected this, I suppose.  I would still like to install Linux, however.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to a smaller, older if necessary
distribution that I could put on it?
