FACTS before uninstalling windows and use linux

Hello everyone..Im a newbie with linux but I want to try it. I have a desktop computer running on xp with 226 mb of RAM. I want to know whether or not i need to reinstall the drivers of my modem and other hardware connected to my pc if i uninstall xp and use the linux? If so, are the drivers available in linux version?

My pc is so slow and I think my windows is corrupted thats why I want to switch to Linux..

I hope you can give a good suggestions. As much as possible, I dont want to reinstall my drivers..I dont have the cd anymore.

Lastly, wat version should i use if i am more on image editing..

THanks..
