Need some good distro ideas

I have an old Dell Optiplex GS, and I want to work on it a little. I want to put either a Linux Operating system or a windows Operating system.

It used to have Windows 98 SE before I did a hard drive swap.
It is in a Desktop Style, NOT a laptop
The system is old, so i am not sure what the specifications are.
A wild guess would be...
*Pentium Processer (original) $
*64 MB - 132 MB Memory
*40 Gigs Hard Drive $
*Floppy Drive $
*CD Drive $
$ For sure

I will be using the computer for a mix of Desktop to Networking. I will need a Wireless Network Support, With an Eithernet Support too.

Thanks in Advance.

BTW... Heres a Picture that looks exactly like the system
