Best OS for a powerbook 2400c?

Just bought a PB2400c, and I'm about to wipe the drive and install from scratch.
I'll probably have os 9.2.2 plus some other OS on another partition.
I have an original Rhapsody DR2 cd which I've read can be installed in the 3400c (so it should also be possible in the 2400c).
Also thinking about NetBSD.
I'll post some pics later on.

Wow, that's quite a footnote in Macintosh history you have there.

Install BeOS on it.

Well, I can dismiss NetBSD as a companion OS to MacOS. The install guide points out it needs the drive all to itself if OpenFirmware version isn't 3 or higher. OF on the 2400c is 2.ish.
I'll install it in an external SCSI drive (or on a CF card) just to get a feel of how usable it can be on this PB.
BeOS, interesting choice. I'd have to find usable media first.

Sadly, I have sold part of my Apple/Mac collection some time ago (MP 120, eMate, IIsi, IIci, SE/30, 6100, 8100, 4400, 6300, 6400, PB Duo 2300, PB1400c, G3 DT, G3 B&W, G4 DA, and more I can't recall now). I also have a couple around not listed in the sig...
