"Old Pentium" isn't very precise; the first Pentiums were in 1993!

The least demanding distributions I know are Bodhi,
https://www.bodhilinux.com/ , and, even less demanding, but wonky,
SliTaz, http://www.slitaz.org/ .

Among major distributions, I think that Debian would probably be the
least demanding.
