In my experience a PC of that spec won't happily run any modern OS. If it did boot Ubuntu it would run unbearably slow and would soon crash due to the lack of a swap partition.

PCs aren't too expensive nowadays - time to join the 21st century (or else stick with Windows 95). I'm impressed that you can get Windows 95 to boot and run without a hard disk.

As I say, with that spec and without a hard disk I wouldn't bother.
