I think you might want to look into a screencast recorder. While you cannot "replay" the commands, you can watch what you did and that may be useful back stepping changes you made.

That and the nvidia 6100 is going to want drivers that are not around anymore. I have used both Xubuntu and lubuntu and like it alot. Just keep an eye out for more ram, I just priced your ram and it is like 15$ (US) 1GB.
