Will there be any problems installing it?

It's a pc for a friend he only surfs the internet and his isp requires xp or vista......

Well, its not an Intel or AMD processor, but from what I hear, XP runs on just about anything so long as it has the correct instruction sets in the cpu. I imagine it should be able to run off of it.

In what way does his ISP 'requier xp or vista'?

Yeah, that doesnt seem right, unless he uses some sort of custom IE browser  that the ISP forces or something, but still, never heard of such a thing.

Yes, it will support XP.

As for the ISP thing, if he got a router as Sparda said then there'd be no need to use any particular OS. It's probable that you could still connect from any other OS but drivers might prevent you from installing the hardware required. The hardware is the only issue though, it doesn't matter which OS you connect to the internet with, whoever your ISP is.
