Default Can a Dell be reformatted with linux(XUbuntu)?

I'm picking up an old P4 Dell and figured it would be a good rig for playing with linux. Will this work, or will I only be able to reinstall using the dell cds?

Mainly going to be using this for folding.

You should be able to install Linux without any problems.

You can probably even get away with one of the older versions of Ubuntu, like 6.06 LTS.

Cheers!
