I have to re-install my wife's acer-aspire-one,
a small netbook with just 512MB (you have to be a brain surgeon to
upgrade the mem).

And worse, just a 10" display.

Any recommendations?
smeegol? 11.4? 12.1?

I presume i have to stay away from standard KDE or GNOME...

Have you looked at xpud

Honestly, i've never heard about it.
Just had a look at the site, and indeed, basic system at just 35MB...
Now that is what i call a minute footprint!!

But that isn't the biggest issue: the AA1 is equiped with 8GB flash.
It is more they size of the display (10") that worries me.
mainstream managers (i'm not sure if it is windowmanager or
displaymanager) simpy expect people to have atleast 46" display on they
desktop ;-)))

I have an ASUS 1000HE 10" display with a 250GB drive and 2GB of RAM, it
runs XP Home, SLED 11 SP1, openSUSE 11.4 (G3) and 12.1 M5 (G3).
