I recently bought an old compaq presario 2700 that originally came with winxp home. i want to try out linux with it and add amikit to make it a fully functional computer again. It does have a dvd drive as well.

What version of linux and amikit should I be using to make this work? I have no knowledge of using anything but windows and the old amiga 500, so really no idea where to start here.

This laptop currently has no OS on it, so do I need to install a linux or not?

Can you do this with a dvd instead of a USB drive? If not what size drive is required? These instructions are now very ckear for someone who has no clue about linux.
