Probably, Mandriva (or any distro for that matter) running a
lightweight GUI like XFCE or Icewm should be good enough for you.  I
had tried Mandriva 9 (or was it 10? forgot the version). on a
Penntium-1 system with 32 MB Ram. Used Icewm on it. It works, but is
painfully slow compared to the current systems we are used to.

Old distro with lightweight GUI should work perfectly. But you might
have to face problems for FF  and the flash plugins.
