128 ram may not be enough for a useable TDE. If you got that far, the 
ExeGNU installer might puke. 256 is probably the useable minimum.. but 
do try it and let us know!

> Debian was too heavy for it

Depends what DE you chose and perhaps you needed to use the optional 
text-based installer. ExeGNU is Debian Wheezy-based.

Another possibility is antiX (also Debian-based) which has 486 kernel 
versions and claims to run on 128 ram.
