Oh, wow, ancient then, yeah.  I've got a Pentium 2 here.  The most RAM it 
can take is 384MB.  That *might* be enough RAM to run Xubuntu (mine 
has 192MB and technically GNOME can run, if it has about 1GB of swap, 
but then no other apps can).  A motherboard from the days of the 
original Pentium would max out at...what? 128MB?
