you could probly use a unix from the console on it too. FreeBSD is good for oldies, although I have a P MMX 166MHZ (maybe 200MHZ) and 32 MB of RAM running redhat for a proxy/web server. I had to updrade from 16 to 32 MB RAM to put redhat on it though. FreeBSD will run on anything with at least 4 MB of RAM (but to run the installer you need 5 MB).
