Xubuntu would run quite adequately on that machine.  It would still be a
little slow.  Failing that things like slax, dsl, are possibles.

Personally if you know Ubuntu well enough then Xubuntu may be your best
bet as control wise they have tried to make it feel as much like Ubuntu
as possible.

P.S. Welcome to the list.  Boy your in for a shock in September :D
