I then will get into the bios by hitting the delete key while boot up and set the bios to boot from the cdrom drive first. After saving the bios settings i will open the cdrom drive and insert a XP cd and reboot the computer. With Windows XP rebooting the computer with the cd in the drive will start XP to installing. Most linux distro's have bootable "Live" cd iso's you can download and burn to a cd. Using the same method as a win XP cd you can then boot up to linux from the cd. They usually have a install feature that will let you install linux on the computer. Be aware that if you install linux they do not use the same file system as windows so you may have to wipe the drive with the drive makers utilities to be able to reformat the drive for windows.
Heres some links to bootable linux distro's.
