If you just want to install a system, then download an ISO image file for a distribution that you'd like to try, create a CD from that file, and boot the computer from the CD.

Popular distributions for new people include Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Mandriva, Suse, PCLinuxOS, Mepis ... or you can have a look at many more possibilities at distrowatch.org

So what issues do you have? We're not psychic (no one is, despite the ads) so you'll have to tell us what you were trying to do, what you did, and what didn't work.
