A copy of Windows 2000 Pro should run okay on that box, but adding a little
memory would help big time. It would also be a smart choice to dedicate this
box to only running SVN.
If you go with Linux check out DSL (http://www.damnsmalllinux.org/). It's
extremely lean and will run fine with only 128MB of memory. It can be
installed to the disk drive and behaves like Debian.
