I'd suggest Gentoo for that machine (it compiles and optimises itself for the system you're installing it on), but it's not noob-friendly
! So it's out the window if you're just trying to learn Linux.
Ubuntu'll probably hog your system, but if you slap in some more RAM you might get away with it.
I'd stick with your original plan of Suse and DSL. Not Mandriva, it's like Fedora - full of complete crap, hogs your system, and you have to pay for upgrades in the vast majority of cases.
