You should look at Redhat 8.0 or 9.0.

Please don't recommend unmaintained, unsafe Linux distributions to

Indeed!

I'd strongly recommend Debian on the OP's aged system, it should
fly even with KDE on it.

Presuming a working Internet connection, Debian GNU/Linux can be
installed through the Internet with just 1-3 floppy images:

Redhat 9 doesn't look *that* unmaintained, look at the
time stamps:

Sure the kernels use the 2.4.20-X version numbers but
it's feature patched forward by RH to have much of the stuff
in even the 2.6 kernels.
