This question already has an answer here:
I have a legacy Lenovo R60 laptop running an Intel Core Solo T3100 (1.67MHz) processor currently running Windows XP (192mb RAM / 40GB HDD). My goal is to try and run Ubuntu on it using a pen-drive, so that machine response is faster and I can free up some space on it for other purposes. Would any particular version of Ubuntu only, work? I would love any tips that a Linux noob can use, and a link to the exact version of Ubuntu to be downloaded would be really appreciated!
