What tips can you share before I try to install Linux on a really old Dell OptiPlex G270, and what virus scanner is best on Linux?

I’ve never installed Linux ever, but want to try and salvage some old machines available to me for Internet Web Browsing and editing docs with open office. What particular Linux version would have the best chance of having all the legacy drivers I will need, and what are some tips you could give before I start?

What are the chance I will not have all the drivers necessary to install on this old machine?
