Yes. Check how much memory it has. 2Gb is a good start. click here

It appears to have an EISA partition and an Acer data partition.

The EISA partition is the backup for XP. You could duel boot XP with Vista and use the data partition for Vista. Or you could install Vista on the C drive and keep the D drive for data.

other options are to merge both C and D to have one large drive.

I personally would and am going to do with my acer laptop is to bypass Vista and go straight to windows 7. My lappy just needs a bit more ram.
