Does it have a CD Rom? What distribution do you want to install?

I've combined your posts. There is no need to make several posts rather than editing your original post. Do you at least have a disk drive if you don't have a CDROM?

Linux has a smaller memory footprint that windows. I guarantee you that you can use it on your system, enjoy.
