To all concerned:
I downloaded, the Zen mini 2010 ;made a "live cd" booted up this tower, and LO and Behold ,it loaded. It has a lovely wallpaper, I like the Chinese Graphics. and the dark grey motif. It was very slow to access Firefox and the control
center. So I tried it on my less powerful tower,which also loaded.
When I tried to load the Control Center, it "hung up".
I might install it on that particular tower. To see if it will work.
I especially like the idea of having a minimal distro ,thereby letting you install the packages that you really need.
Here is a suggestion for future consideration.
Build a Distro with just the minimum packages, but enable it to be customized as one requires, e.g.
A Gnome or KDE or XFCE etc. with the ability to download the relevant packages with possible cross-platform, Gnome pkg with KDE or XFCE pkg,witth Gnome or KDE .
Hope this helps.
p.s. Any Distro that I preview, try to see if my Brother DCP-115C multifunction ,and my Epson Color Stylus 740
printer are recognised.KDE would not recognise my Epson printer, till PCLinuxOS 2009 was able to.
My Brother is another Saga.
