Is my laptop capable of running a linux OS?

So, I bought a Dell Inspiron 3800, which runs windows 98.

it has 64 MB RAM, Intel Pentium III, and it is a single core processor configuration

I was wondering if there was a Linux based OS that would run with this computer??

And if so, which ones??

Thanks, I've never use linux before, so I would appreciate all the help that I can get.
