Yes.  You can easily install linux 6.2 on your machine.  You need to decide if you want to keep Windows.  If you do, you will need to make a partition using Partition Magic or something similar.  Redhat installer will let you choose which partition you would like to install linux on.  If you do have Windows, when you boot, linux's lilo boot will give you the option of booting in linux or in windows.  You could fdisk it but there is no point in doing so if you are not keeping windows.  You can simply install linux over windows making it your only operating system.  In sum, you can for sure get linux on your computer.

I did it on my old Compaq Prolinea 4/66 also, thus, your 2 years old Compaq should not be a problem.!
