What is a good version of linux for my old computer?

I have this really old HP Pavilion (7360). It has 72 or 75 mb of ram, 266mhz MMX processor, and a 5gig hard drive. I was thinking of a version of Ubuntu for it, but would it run too slow? I already tried DSL linux, with its 1x(something around that speed) CD drive the live CD didn’t run well. If there are other versions that would work good please tell me. P.S. I used to have 98 on it, but I was fooling around with DSL linux and deleted the windows partition.
Well I tried Xubuntu 6.06.1 and Slitaz and neither worked! Slitaz just stayed at a screen, and Xubuntu found errors and didn’t do any thing els.

Ubuntu Dual-Boot Windows 7?

Ok so i just got my Ubuntu 10.04 Desktop LTS in the mail. i am using the live cd so it is basically a dual boot. but when i get into ubuntu, it says for my ethernet and wireless that it is disconnected. One time when it booted, it said for the wireless that the device was not ready. i have read around and apparently windows is screwing with my Linux. Is there a way around this crap without uninstalling windows? P.S. I have used ndisgtk.
