What do you want to do with it?
I'm currently running Slackware 10 on a AMD K6/III@450MHz with 128MB (desktop) and Ubuntu on a PIII@500MHz with 384MB (laptop).

Well, there's a penitum 3-450, is that the one?

Any distro will run on this. This is a big machine for linux and I have Mandrake 10.1 running on the P3-450's and 550's here, and a celeron 666 which would be less powerful.

Also have mandrake running on a pentium 188, but that's another story...
