Probably already done for you:

How to use Red Hat CD's and a custom installer to put recent versions of 
RHL (soon Fedora) onto hardware which otherwise would be considered too old 
to support it. Successful installs of RHL 8.0 systems using their installer 
were documented using 486 computers and 8 MB of RAM... your P/60 will do 
just fine and likely have a working GUI as well.
