I ran pd (debian, blackbox) on a 120Mhz pentium a while ago even doing audio
(with -r 22050) but with -nosound only for midi it should be fine.

I would always go for debian, in your case maybe slackware is a better
just make sure you kill everything you don't need, (down to syslog if
necessary) make a custom kernel with preemption turned on and turn off
swapping if you have enough ram.
