Anand Kulkarni Sir and  me had experiment  for this. He wanted linux to be
running with good speed on low-end PCs in rural schools. We found that
slackware was the most lightweight and stable distribution though comes with
KDE(slckware also supports xfce). We tried it on slackware 9.2. on P2 with
64mb ram. I dont know about newer versions. You can tweak further by
disabling unused services and recompiling kernel for your hardware.
