Probably the best way to tell would be to boot Linux from a DVD or USB stick and see. Most of the modern distros have a no-install version that lets you kick the tires without touching your hard drive. There are also a few like Knoppix that are really aimed at being a DVD/USB only distro. Also check out UNetbootin, it is a good way to create a bootable USB stick with a Linux distro.
