Have already tried Precise Puppy Linux 5.6.1. Come to think of it ain't Puppy based on  Ubuntu? Anyway, i have finally settled for CrunchBang Linux 11.

 

Thanks for the replies and suggestions though rburkartjo.

The best lightweight linux distro is LXLE which is a souped up version of Lubuntu 12.04 and is a long term support version. Review - http://distrowatch.com/weekly.php?issue=20130909#feature

Best guide to this is http://www.dedoimedo.com/computers/dual-boot-windows-7-ubuntu.html

 

Windows 7, Linux Mint and a lightweight distro like Zorin light or LXLE would go well.
