You can get DSL (Damn Small Linux) to run on your hardware. Here's a
link to an account of it running on similar hardware:
The problem is that your daughter (and you) will have to deal with a
pretty Spartan user environment. You could also try other liveCD based
distros (<http://www.frozentech.com/content/livecd.php>) but I doubt you
will be able to find anything much better than DSL given your hardware
