I was happily running Debian and on a P3 333 MHz, with 192 Mb RAM for many years. It was even reasonable running a full gnome desktop. However, gnome has (I believe) gotten a little fatter in recent years, so if you want to run a desktop environment, you may do better with something like xfce or lxde (both in Debian).
