Take a look at Lubuntu. Personally, I would rather upgrade my hardware than run an old PC. Even a 64 bit dual core pentium would be better that 32 bit anything. You need much more memory to do anything non trivial. More memory than you can get from 32 bit hardware.

lubuntu | lightweight, fast, easier

First install an rdp client like rdesktop
Then configure this to autostart in your desktop.
If you want no desktop (that gives you the option of starting many rdp clients plus other applications), then I think you still need the desktop login and configure the rdp client as a session manager.
In theory you can even skip the desktop login: you only need to start an Xorg display server and the rdp client using a command like startx.
I am lacking practical experience...

Crawl before you walk.

If you can get it running by hand, you'll have a better idea what you need to ask next.
