    Hi there,
    i have an old G5 that kernel panics when the graphics hardware is used to a certain extent. I'm looking for a really slim linux distribution that allows me to use it for ssh. I only want a terminal (green on black please) with color support for vi syntax highlighting :)

    any ideas?
