Puppy Linux Tahr 5.0.6 fits into 1G of disk space and runs well on only 500mb of RAM on an old XP box.
Previously I installed Puppy Linux Slako 5.7.1 with SCIM Chinese. Since I regularly use Ubuntu I thought it best to install Puppy Linux Tahr 5.0.6, commonly called “tahrpup” instead. I tried to install SCIM Chinese teh same way as on the Slacko version, and it failed. Eventually I did get the FCITX Chinese to install. It works very well, but was somewhat difficult to find out what works.

I have an old dell desktop with Win XP on it that runs slowly. Though it is old I thought I’d try a different Linux distribution on it. The smaller ones were Puppy Linux Precise 5.7.1 2013, and Debian Dog Jesse. Here is how I put Chinese input on Puppy Linux Precise 5.7.1.
My old Dell is a Dimension 1100/B110, 2006, P4 Celeron, 2.66mhz, 778mb ram. It is old.
