Hello all,
I have given my brother my old PC, however it is a pentium 1 and I recon about to give up the ghost, however a mate of his has given him a pentium 2, that is much better than the one that I gave him.

Anyway the pentium 2 has windows XP installed (Pentium 1 has Windows 98), but has no office..word, exel, powerpoint....etc, but the Pentium 1 does.....Can I transfer the stuff from the pentium 1 to the pentium 2?

No, copying does not integrate the applications with Windows on another machine.

As long as you have the original installation disks, and remove it from the old machine, before you install on the new machine. It should work.

"Or any other office ?"

As I suggested in an earlier post... open office.

It's a full office suite and is F.R.E.E.
