I'd say that ecasound <http://www.eca.cx/> probably is the best option
for this.  I used it for some time with a 2-something MHz Celeron
with 128 MB RAM, and an M-Audio Delta-66.  I found that with some
streamlining of the system (kill X, the network interface, firewall,
sshd, etc.) I could not only capture two 44.1/16 tracks, but also
simultaneously monitor a mix of a couple of previously recorded
tracks--and this was before I figured out how to get jack working

It also actually will support ladspa plugins and has some other
interesting features.
