I'm looking for a free + lightweight NAS distro that could run nicely on a low spec Icybox (see http://www.raidsonic.de/en/products/nas-systems.php?we_objectID=6853)

Storlink3516, Arm9 300 Mhz

128mb RAM

For general storage, backups and a git/ VC server.

Only thing I came across that matched the description, was hotnas, which seems pretty dead o_0

My RaspberryPI with 256 MB RAM occupies about 50-80 megabytes with Debian ARM distribution with 2 services : samba and transmission-daemon so 128 MB will be enough in your case.

Debian should be sufficient. Check out this guide for installation tips, although I am not sure if all steps will apply to your hardware.
