Standard mint , but with everything removed except the mint specific apps and synaptic
The goal - a lighter mint that you can build and customize to your hearts desire

A minimum 128MB of memory is recommended to use the main LiveCD. 64MB is needed for the "slitaz-loram" flavor and 16MB for the "slitaz-loram-cdrom" flavor.
With the slitaz-loram flavour, the system is less responsive, but allows you to graphically install SliTaz on very old machines. Once installed, Slitaz works well with a minimum of 16MB memory, but forget about using Firefox to surf the web - you'll have to use the text based 'links' for example.
This version requires at least 160 Mb to boot and run properly, we offer loram flavors for machines with less resources. (...) The loram flavor can start SliTaz on machines with very little resources and needs only 64 MB, the loram-cdrom requires 16 MB and ejects and/or uses the cdrom and loram-cdrom-sqfs can boot using only 10 MB and a little swap memory, but is unable to release the cdrom.

Edit: I installed a cooker version of slitaz on the old HP with 128 MB of RAM. The pc ran quick and only used 30 MB of RAM at idle! The included applications were as good or better than TinyFlux. I saw there is a remaster feature and when time allows I will be trying it out.There is no account selection in the install routine but it is not much of a problem considering how small the iso size is and how well the installed system ran.
