Please, does anyone know of a link which I can use to test whether or not my PC is compatable with Windows XP?

Thank you

I use to have a 400MHz Celeron system and the original Windows 98 and then 98SE was upgraded to XP Pro; later the CPU was updated to a Pentium Slot1 550MHz (the motherboard had both a Slot1 and Socket 370 facility) and now it's a PentiumIII 1GB Coppermine FC-PGA processor on a five-year-old Gigabyte motherboard.

The difference in using XP Pro compared to the endless hours sorting out Windows 98 and 98SE is quite staggering....:-)

It's the most stable and reliable OS I've ever used and I've been involved with quite a few since 1980.

To add to that I've "only" got 256MB of RAM and, up to recently, a GeForce2 MX 400 graphics card now replaced by a GeForceFX 5200 as the MX 400 decided to lay down its arms; otherwise it would have been retained as it did all I required.
