From 2003. Mm. That Celeron is almost certainly 32-bit. Which would rule out Brian's suggestion of FatDog64.
I do agree that a 'Puppy' would be your best way to go, given the specs. A 32-bit Puppy.....
I would suggest trying Tahrpup 6.05, based on the Ubuntu long-term support release, 'Trusty Tahr' 14.04 LTS. It's one of the most stable current 6-series 'Pups' there is, and would work well with your hardware. It's supported, via the Ubuntu repositories, until at least April 2019.
Puppy loads into, and runs entirely from, RAM. Which accounts for why it's so fast.
Just a suggestion. Mind you, I think you'll be heading down the Linux path, one way or another. That hardware is definitely not going to run Win 10. Even if it could, it would be a struggle.....
Those 'NetBurst'-gen Celerons were dog slow running Windoze, of any flavour. I know. I had one..!
