You might want to make things easy on yourself with that old computer and just leave it with XP as there are no Windows 7 drivers for any of it. At best there might be a Vista driver for the odd bit (doubtful), with most everything having to use either whatever default driver Windows itself will install (generic and only basic functionality) or whatever last XP driver is available.

Most likely, Windows Update will provide any and all drivers. How much memory is in that system?

As long as you have a free PCI slot it should be fine. They also have XP drivers for it.
