Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I think KDE is always going to be slow on 333Mhz, there is just no way around it no matter what distro you use. But maybe you could improve things a bit by trying prelinking... more info for example here: http://www.crast.us/james/articles/prelink.php
I know prelinking is one of the tricks that Yoper uses to good effect. Unfortunately I don't think Yoper would install on your machine, since it is meant for i686 architecture.
I run Slackware 9.1 with KDE 3.2.3 on my Compaq K6-2 400mhz. It gets slow at times (I treat it like I treat my pm1.3ghz laptop), but usually it's OK. If KDE is too slow, go for Window Maker or XFCE, although I didn't get into XFCE that much.
