The crank! The crank that old computers have to make them go... a joke!

There's several desktops much lighter than both. Trying to remember
their names off the top of my head, XFCE? Something like that. 

KDE can be a hawg for sure. But your older machine has more speed and
memory than the one I used to run FC5 and KDE on, so it's not impossible
at all. 

But you may find yourself doing a text-based install depending on your
video card setup. That is no biggie at all. Keep the animation crap and
bells and whistles turned off, plus any unnecessary services, it'll go
just fine. 
Your machine beats the Hell out of my old 486 with 32 megs of memory. I
ran Caldera on it and it served 20 users on old B&W terminals and 8
modems. The good ole BBS days, AHH! My Youth! It's sure gone now!!
