Pentium 4s are now over ten years old, even the newest are 7 years old ... this is ancient.

But it is true that most P4 machines (say, certainly anything-Northwood & up) don't really require any special distro - if only they have comfortable amounts of RAM.

Even if a bit low on RAM - say, with quite typical then 256-512 MiB - Lubuntu should be fine, no need for something like Puppy.
