It should work, but you'll probably have to make some boot floppies if you can't boot from CD. Once you are booted, you can install using the CDs, or do a network install if Ubuntu has that option.
BTW: welcome to the board!

Now for booting the cd, I assume you have already tried putting the cd as the 1st boot device in the BIOS, otherwise try the suggestions in this threadLife is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.

Please do not post question in the Tutorial section of the forum. There is a Newbie section for this sort of post.
Use Suse 10.1 and occasionally play with Kubuntu
Also have Windows 98SE and BeOS
