Small machine Linux, with a twist

I want to reinstall the OS on my iOpener. It's a Rise (Pentium MMX-class) 200 with an 800x600 display and sound. The gotcha: the Ethernet adapter is a USB DLink. It's currently running Red Hat 7.2, but that's sloooooow to get started.

I'd pondered DeLinux, after vakkotaur's success, but that's a 2.2 kernel, and I don't think it'll handle USB Ethernet. I might try Vector. The key is that this is a desktop system, not a server, and so I need X and a (small, fast) window manager. KDE and GNOME are too big for that machine.
