As long as you have enough RAM!
See http://www.ltsp.org for lots of info on RAM/NetWork SWAP/Firefox's
usage etc etc.
If you just want a no-touch-the-existing and have minimum of 256M ram
works better than the ubuntu-live CDs.
I have 192Mb, which is the maximum it supports.
Better yet, steal 512M from the existing disk and set it up as swap. The
CDs will work much better.
That's my plan once the machine is configured, though you gave me an idea
for the interim live-cd phase.
