I had a Thinkpad 600e (366mhz) for quite a while.  Loaded up with
296MB of RAM it was actually quite functional.  Although it had a
crappy sound card, it worked without any headaches.  I did an ftp
install, too, so you wouldn't even need the cd to at least get up and
running, as long as it has the floppy.
