If you are going to have both Windows and Linux on the same hard disk you are going to be a bit pushed. You could delete windows and just install Linux but you need a CD for that. To install Linux without a CD you are at some point going to have both Windows and Linux on the computer.
128 Mbs and a 20Gb hard disk is barely enough for windows alone.
