Lubuntu is based on Ubuntu, but it is very light on resources. Your system should meet the minimum specs: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/In...emRequirements
Use the 32 bit Lubuntu 13.04.
Lubuntu is also relatively full featured and very easy for beginners to use.
I would recommend using the text based alternate install CD to install Lubuntu instead of the live CD since you only have 512mb RAM.
Also, once you have Lubuntu installed you need to stick with the light weight Linux apps.
If you start installing heavy programs like Rhythmbox, or Amarok music players for example, then this will put much more demands on your limited system.

If you need something really light then go with one of the really light mini distros like DSL, Puppy, Tiny Core, or Slitaz as others have suggested.

If you plan on using this system for a while, then you may want to consider adding more memory to it to improve performance.
Thanks, yes i gonna keep this oldy alive. Bur i consider to buy a nex computer, than i can do more.
Greetings,
Mefisto
