The main question is, how much memory ? 667mhz should be fine with Linux, but the memory can be a problem. I find if less than 2 gig you may run into issue with X based utilities. Maybe try something like puppy(?)

But, for 32 bit machines with limited memory, I'd go with NetBSD or OpenBSD. Both seem good in low memory situations and you get the benefit of 2038 support.

Everything, further installation did not go.
There is no response to a single key on the keyboard.

Maybe give SliTaz or Tiny Core Linux a try.
