The best solution is:
Since your system is old,try out xubuntu and then after installing xubuntu you can install ubuntu updates perfect for low end systems... xubuntu system requirements are:
To run the Desktop CD (LiveCD + Install CD), you need 128 MB RAM to run or 192 MB RAM to install. The Alternate Install CD only required you to have 64 MB RAM.

To install Xubuntu, you need 1.5 GB of free space on your hard disk.

Once installed, Xubuntu can run with 64 MB RAM, but it is strongly recommended to use at least 128 MB RAM
(Xubuntu is a light flavour of ubuntu,which comees with xfce desktop perfect for low end systems...)

Xubuntu can be downloaded from:
