No you will need a CD.

A Win ME PC will never be able to run VISTA. It might even have problems with WIN XP. You need a minimum of 256 MB of memory and a 10 GB hard disk for WIN XP.

You might be able to download a version of Linux and run a dual boot machine. But, most versions of Linux need to be installed from a bootable CD.
