How much RAM do these systems have? You could try installing a base
system of debian and then manually install the X packages and a
lightweight window manager like fluxbox. Manually installing packages
will help you avoid daemon processes you dont need. You can even
remove unwanted daemon processes from the base debian install using
something like 'sysv-rc-conf'.
