Sure is, I used it for a good 8 months on my old rig when the HDD died and I couldn't find Windows 98 hehe.
Have you ever used Debian before? I hadn't and found it a bit daunting at first...
Take a look at this Begginers Guide that I found VERY useful at http://ubuntuguide.org/
It's got everything you need.
Once again, well worth it, I found it ran a bit slower then XP, but the rig was... poor.
Hope that helps

8 months! Is it that old? (Are you talking about v5.10)

It was probably more like 4, but certainly seemed that long
It was good, but I got a bit home sick after a while. After all, it was the only installation I had on that 8GB BEAST of a drive! Firefox is built in, so you won't be cut off from overclock.net if you do decide to use it

It was v5.04 btw
