That PC cannot be from 1999 as it has hyper-threading, 2002 the earliest.
You also have 1.5GB of RAMflags: fpu vme de pse tsc msr pae mce cx8 apic mtrr pge mca cmov pat pse36 clflush dts acpi mmx fxsr sse sse2 ss ht tm pbe up pebs bts cid xtpr
Your PC should run anything up to XFCE just fine and maybe even MATE.
In my school, we have a concert laptop which is uber slow. I don't remember the specs off my head but it is _definitely_ worse than yours. It's running Lubuntu atm and is quite snappy. I guess any LXDE or XFCE based distro will work quite well on yours. Gnome 2/Mate should also work fine. But if you want something even lighter, Damn Small Linux is quite lightweight.

Fuduntu also comes with tweaks to maximize battery life, which is nice. The functionality is easy to replicate on Ubuntu, it involves moving tmp/logs to ram, installing laptop-mode-tools and tweaking it, and changing your swappiness to 10
Also, for older computers, Haiku is a pretty great OS. It's based on BeOS, and is super fast. It's still in alpha, and there's not a lot of applications available for it, but it's awesome nonetheless.

Ok I live booted fuduntu, I liked it but it was a little slow.
So what do you think, fuduntu or stick with peppermint and which will run better?
Peppermint will probably give you better performance, but you should be able to run Fuduntu.
