You could try:

xubuntu (ubuntu but with a more limited gui for speed): http://www.xubuntu.org/
- this would probably be the easiest to deal with, as there's a lot of ubuntu support out there.

thx geek currently using xubuntu on that pII works great so far. might try out puppy too seems to be a bit faster but i think that it is meant to be more of a live disk than an hdd install though. which is why i went with the xubuntu instead.
