I use Xubuntu on a Dell PIII notebook with 128MB RAM with great success 
(even the wi-fi works). Not sure about a PII though. What I can say is 
that I had to install the alternative release of Xubuntu, even on a 
PIII, as the live CD didn't run on such low specs.

There's also Fluxbuntu, which I haven't tried out yet.
