At that speed, any minimalist distro should work fine. My suggestions would be either SliTaz or Puppy (or MacPuppy if you like the dock). Anything like Ubuntu or Fedora won't even want to look at your hardware.

personnally for your setup I would use Slitaz because it perform all tasks of a full distro and is super fast on old hardware while keeping itself a little aestheticlly pleasing

Damn Small Linux (DSL) is a good, minimal distribution from what I've heard.
