With this much hardware, there is no way you are going to be able to run KDE or
You don't say the type/speed of the CPU, but you don't mention a CD. Something
that old would probably not be able to boot from a USB port, so you'd have to
load from floppy. You might want to try Tom's Root Boot Floppy -
http://www.toms.net/rb/ - and see if it will boot that.
If that works, it looks like a good candidate for Linux From Scratch.
