Would you like a GUI or no GUI? If you want a GUI, you'll be hard-pressed to find something, but I'm sure there's something out there. If you want no GUI, anything will work on it.

IF you want a GUI, then I agree with AceofSpades19 - try Damn Small Linux

You might want to check out this report;

of a 486 DX using DSL (admittedly probably an older version)

Currently I am running Damn Small Linux on a computer with 24MB of RAM. You can't expect anything spectacular, but it works.

I personally would recommend Puppy Linux for your computer (unless it's a Toshiba, I read a report somewhere that Puppy doesn't work well on those). I've also heard that DSL works pretty well on 32MB RAM.

I own a Toshiba Satellite 2105CDS and Puppy worked better than DSL did. DSL required a lot of boot options. Puppy worked immediately.
