You could definitely put it on a really slow machine.  Try a Sun SPARC
IPX or some old m68k based Mac.  The fun thing with Debian is that we
support all that old stuff, and let me tell you, it's slooowwww.  You
could probably get such a machine for free if you know who to ask, or
really cheap if you want to check Ebay.
