I would have said "i386-pc-linux-gnulibc1-static", or maybe "i386-pc-linux-gnu-gnulibc2.1", but those don't seem to be available anymore.

"Intel versions run on the given processor and higher." You can try the "i686-pc-linux-gnu". If it doesn't run, then I guess you can't use that computer to run SETI@home.
