A question Please:
Before I waste my time trying this, does anyone know if Win XP will run with a spec of Pentium 2 667mh proc and 512mb of pc100 ram.

Many thanks for any help.

Yes - until recently a friend of mine was running XP on a 166 with 192mb ram.

Sorry - might have been a 266 - but way below the spec of your machine.

Thanks very much.
Hate to waste my time without some info.

I've run XP Pro on 64 Meg, slow as leo49 getting a round in, but it works.
