I was using a PIII with something like a 333MHz processor, and found
that the processor could handle Linux and Scribus Ok, but with 256MB RAM
there was a serious problem at times. Upgrading to 512+RAM should take a
lot of your problems away -- the main thing was stability.
Surely with this system you can put in at least 512MB of RAM, and it
shouldn't be very expensive either.
