So far I've had success running fluxbox on my old dell laptop with a 600mhz CPU and 128mb of RAM.
pkg_add -r fluxbox It has a nice menu generator that will pick up most installed programs and make them available to you through its menus. I usualy have enough memory left to run konsole with a few shells, gedit and opera with minimal swapping.
