I have a Pentium II 300 based system and I use Win95 and Nt 4.0 but I would like to start to use Linux. My problem is that I don´t know anything about Linux and I don´t Know what version would be better for me and where I can  get it. I´ve tryed to install an old Slackware version (96 v 2.0) and I found that it was no developed for AGP bus, nor Pentium II procesor, etc. so that why I will thank a lot any of you who can help me.
Best wishes form Spain.

RedHat 5.1 is your best option I think... And they say they support several AGP buses... Have a look at http://www.redhat.com/support/docs/rhl/intel/rh51-hardware-intel.html

Good luck,
PS: "they say" means I haven't tried myself ;-)
