Debian might by now be the only distribution whose binaries still run
on pre-Pentium processors, so in principle it is possible to use it on
such an old machine.
However, 4MB is really *very* little memory, and I guess the HD is
also really small. Unless you're an experienced Linux user, I wouldn't
try installing Debian on the machine - you'd have to resort to all
kinds of tricks to get the installer to run, and maybe you'd even have
to compile a custom kernel.
