Whatever distro you choose, make sure it supports the XFCE desktop
manager. Trying to use the KDE or Gnome desktops with only 128MB will be
a very painful experience. This I speak from bitter experience.
For a variety of mostly historical reasons, I run Fedora Core, which
supports all the above desktops.
Others have suggested Ubuntu, which installs Gnome. You would probably
be better off with Xubuntu, which installs XFCE. If you can upgrade to
256MB or more, then KDE and presumably Gnome will run just fine.
