Yu'll have to reformat first, DOS and Win 3.1 would have to be installed first then XP Home to another partition so you can dual boot.
My mom's old computer had the same specs as yours and it ran Windows 2000 with antivirus and antispyware just fine. I'd recommend that since it's atleast a true 32-bit OS and can still run almost everything windows xp can.
