How good or bad will my machine be with Delicate? (I will be satisfied if it will not be worse than 98), as you see my machine is above minimum but below recommended.

I guess, it should work with the tiny X server, but I don't know if you can start one or more X programs without swapping, but there are many command line tools and ncurses programs.
Make sure you have at least some swap (64-128MB?).

It is configurable in /boot/grub/menu.lst (other distris name it grub.conf)

See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FreeDOS#Booting .
