It depends on given RAM - you could try it first with Lubuntu (32-Bit-CD) - but if RAM is smaller than about 120 MB to 130 MB - then it would not work with Ubuntu (32-Bit-CD). Would be good if you deliver a hardware - description too. Because e.g. intel centrino is not easily (I did not achieve with centrino and Ubuntu up to today) to be installed with Lubuntu resp. Ubuntu. ( It depends too - if CD-drive is able to boot properly in case it is a really old Laptop ... )
