Only 500 MHz and 256 MB of RAM

http://forums.opensuse.org – Can OpenSUSE work on a laptop with only a 500 MHz processor and 256 MB of RAM? A minimal Ubuntu with GNOME installation runs at a reasonable speed on such an ancient computer even though the full installation is too heavy. (The process involves starting off with a command line only installation and adding just the necessary packages.) Is there such a thing as a minimal, stripped-down OpenSUSE installation?
