    For a system with that amount of RAM, you'll need something extremely lightweight. Lubuntu is nice, but I think you will absolutely need 64 MBs at the bare minimum (and that's pushing it). Maybe Puppy Linux or something lighter than that.

    Sorry: No distro will give you a decent performance on this hardware. Don't waste your time trying to get it running.

    There's no point in dealing with stuff from 1998 when there's so much 4-6 years old used hardware available for a very modest price.
    If you install Buntu 17.10 remember to download a new ISO file.

    Old ISO files might contain a bug which can damage UEFI hardware. Updating an existing installation and upgrading to 17.10 (if one has faith in upgrades in general) are safe.
