Also with linux install can they take windows drivers for like my touch screen monitor?

Most of the linux will work out of the box, although that ram and the processor are not quite enough to run recent distros'



Damn small linux?

I may actually be insane.

You'd be surprised, a nice desktop distro will run on a p100 with 64mb memory. It won't be running at full speed, but it will run.

I'd recommend either SuSe 10 or Ubuntu.

As for your drivers, you'll need to find linux specific drivers, windows drivers and applications do not work in linux.
