On my P3s Crunchbang worked every time. I was never fond of Openbox and always did: sudo apt-get install xfce4*.

In addition to CrunchBang, others without Desktop Environments (DEs) and which work well with PIII CPUs include antiX, Zenwalk, Salix, PCLOS -- look for those versions with only Windows Managers (WMs) and not DEs, as a suggestion.

The only DE that will have decent performance on such a machine as yours IMHO is LXDE but, again (and as you discovered with lubuntu), it depends on the distribution. Further, I suggest performing a Base install rather that a Full install of the distro chosen, should that option exist.
