He likes to play flash and javascript games, and I was concerned that the 
pentium 120 would make that unplesent, but It probaly wouldn't be too much 
better over ethernet, I've used VNC over ethernet before, and it's a bit of a 
pain, but perhaps that's just an issue with VNC.

I was thinking of just seting up debian or some othe distro with a thin 
installer and not letting him have root ( at least not at first )

I also need a way to log his internet use, I've already got squid installed 
on my gateway, can it be setup to log URLs?
