Default best os for old ibm?

i have a "designed for win2k" ibm all-in-one pc. i wasted 2hrs defragging/disk cleanup-ing it, and it still take 6:43 (counted) to turn on. i need to be able to have it boot up in less than a minute, and not take 10mins to open firefox (no joke)...
what would work?
im thinking dsl (damn small linux)?
but it needs to have on it. (or ms office)...

733mhz socket 370 celeron (66mhz fsb, i tried a 1.1ghz with a 100fsb it didnt boot),
512mb (2x256mb) pc133 ram
40gb ide hard drive.
problem is the cd drive is shot. so i will need to install it via usb port.

<--this is so cute
