Best Distro for an old machine

Hi folks,

We have some old P3s we are setting up to play retro LAN games (such
as 'Craft) ala Wine. What would everyone recommend as a good Linux distro
for these older machines? I need something small and fast. Already tried
Ubuntu, and it was too slow. Next I am going to try VectorLinux. Since the
system requirements for these games are something like a Pentium 90 MHz, I
would expect to be able to get them running fine on a P3 1.0 GHz!

Any tips would be greatly appreciated!
