Have been given a Windows XP computer but with no (IDE) hard drive. Can i fit a new hard drive and run an OS "Linux" to boot up from or even to install straight off the CD? Thanks in advance.

Yes, just done it this weekend, alter the start up sequence in bios so that the cd drive is first to boot.
