I'd suggest Damn Small Linux, or such.
Then you could use basic X for gui perhaps?
Or there are probably MP3 players without GUI, since 486 is slowish with MP3 +GUI.

I'm not too sure if 486 plays any moviefiles at all :roll: But that's just me.

I too indeed have strong doubts about playing video with anything less then 500 MHz...

I would use debian net-install, X.org and IceWM.
