    What would you install on it?

    I forget that Athlon xp was 32bit only so if you want to install Linux make sure it's a 32bit version & Xubuntu would be to "heavy" for your system , you should really try Lubuntu or Puppy Linux 32 bit , also for windows 7 updates you need to have at least SP1 install first unless you already...
