Yes, the Intel Pentium M is 32-bit. Using the live DVD, you should be able to see what works or not. If things need adjusting, it is possible to install extra packages or reconfigure just about anything in the session just as long as you don't reboot.

Yes - if it sees your WiFi card.

There are many formal editions of Ubuntu and Lubuntu is one of them.

For that age machine, I'd go with MX-Linux versus one of the Buntu family. The MX folks want to keep supporting 32 bit into the future while many other distros will not. It has a great support forum as well and questions are answered very fast...

Entering lubuntu.net lubuntu.me into Google comes up with this as the second hit:

https://www.reddit.com/r/Lubuntu/com...ats_happening/

which explains that the .me site was set up when Lubuntu was having problems with the .net site, but they have kept both going.

According to distrowatch.com (http://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=lubuntu), the .me site is now the official one, so I would use that if I were you.

Generally with virtual technology, you need to remember you are running 2 operating systems at the same time and unless you have a fairly powerful computer, it can get slow.
So probably the smaller the better for the guest OS.

I think that means intel core 2 duo and 3/4 GB of RAM is not really enough to run more than 1 OS (= run a VM).

You can run almost any OS that you want.

I like running my virtual machines with 4.gb for the guest OS and at least 4.gb for the host OS. Any serious OS gets dual booted.

The thing about Linux is try different distros till you find one that runs great...Than let us know what works for you

p.s.
did lubuntu work for your other computer?

You probably need to get the 32 bit version.
