This would probably be better sent to -mobile, but as long as it's here...

You can almost assuredly run freeBSD with KDE on that system.  I did
with my 366mhz thinkpad and it was fine.  If you had the availability
of more RAM, it would be helpful, but 320 would cut it.  I'm not sure
what your video issues were with Mandrake and you didn't send your
video card spex/brand/etc.  It seems from a quick google search that
people got FreeBSD running on a computer of that model since they are
asking how to get the winModem running.  I recommend trying it and
seeing if it works.
