BodhiLinux (The link is in my signature) is very lightweight. It's Ubuntu based (the lts version). It's highly configurable. It's an easy quick install, you get to choose what software you want. Software can be directly installed from their website or from Synaptic/Terminal if you so wish. I've been running it for about six months now and like it very much.
They have a good support forum as well
It's nice to be important, it's much more important to be nice.
