Default Which Version of linux?

hey i was wondering which district of linux would be best to put on a gateway 2000 from 1997 it's specs are P II 266MHz about 64MB of ram, 4Mb video card, and 2 4GB hardrives. the version of linux that takes up the smallest ammount of space and power would probably also be best, but also a version thats somewhat easy 2 learn linux with. your suggestions are very appreaciated!! please give me as much info as u can on the 1 u recommend because i would like 2 know about it before i start working on burning and installing it thanks in advance
