Q about linux

hi i have a small netbook tht is getting out of date. its just not working fast enough to do the things im trying to do which is mostly games. ive pretty much tweaked my pc as good as i can without overclocking.

1: im wondering if linux is less demanding on my computers resources as xp and if so how great of an impact can i expect

2:will games be harder to get working on it

3:pretty much with the idea of getting my games to run better is linux even worth considering

4: ive seen tht its possable to run both xp and linux on the same computer,so if all the above questions look good for wat my purpose is..wat r the steps ill need to take to getting started. will i need any extra programs, drivers, updates.

thx for taking the time to help
