Default Hmmm,Which OS?

Right,Im having some issues regarding my Thin Client! Basically i just want it to download torrents on a schedule! I Have tried:

-Windows XP (Hardrive too small)'
-Windows 98 (Wont install from USB CDROM)
-Ubuntu 8.10 (Hardrive To Small)
-Puppy Linux (Wouldnt install?)
-DSL (Wont Install?)
-FreeNAS (It's a BITCH To setup properly)
-Currently Trying DSL Through a Virtual box,then i will image it and put it on the client.


So does anybody have any ideas as to what to do?

Specs:

-1Ghz VIA C3
-256mb RAM
-256mb SSD
-USB,Ethernet,Video,Sound All Onboard


Though it has a Windows XP Embedded COA,But where do i Get XP Embedded from?

you could use a program called puppy linux. save the iso to a dvd and run linux off the dvd. It also save settings and files to either your hard drive or the dvd

It doesnt have an internal DVD Drive,i only have an Exernal DVD Drive,the aim of this client is to make it completely silent.My new plan is to figure out how to install Windows Xp Embedded (It's got the COA for it so why not).
