    Yes, sure it is possible.

    Format your hard drive with Linux (Red Hat, Suse or somethin else) the install Suse Linux Standard System, with Reiser FS.
    Connected via Modem or DSL? Choose the right network it configures itself.

    Also you have Sun Open Office and all Programms for free

    Go online via Netscape or any other browser and you have a BONUS:
    you never get a virus under LINUX!

    Hope that was a litte bit helpful to you

    And dont hesistate to ask

    PS: Sorry for my bad english

    With a computer that is near modern you can run in a GUI environment that is similar to Windows. Most of the big name programs that you will need will be available under one name or another. I found Linux to be very solid, but lacked the ability for me to do my normal gaming. I'm thinking about putting it on my laptop.

    The key to success with Windows is to keep up to date with spyware, antivirus, and normal MS updates while praying to your god of choice that none of these updates crash the blasted thing. I love technology

    Linux is good, but for advanced users. If you've asked that question, I'm guessing you're not one...
    Windows is not too bad, you just need better maintenance. Start by formating it (but achtung! backup yourfiles first). Then, every now and then run scandisk and the defrag. Never open E-mails of an unknown sourse, avoid entering porn sites (or at least porn site that may be unsafe), never accept things like the gozilla, and most importantly: never use internet explorer - switch to Firefox, it's the best and safest browser in the market.
    Using an antivirus is vital, and the same goes for a firewall - but they may slow down the computer.
