System compatibility

I was planning to buy some new software but all the sys. requirements state the OS must be WinXP which I don't have. My system is Win98 with 128Mb ram 500MHz Pentuim 111 cpu. Is this a high enough spec to run an office suite with DTP?
Can anyone advise?
Thanks.

Hi sparky47, your system spec is ample for running office suites. I don't know if Office XP will run with Windows 98, but there are many free or budget office suites that will. I am running Office 2000 with Windows 98se and an 850M Duron with no trouble. My system used to be a Pentium 75 with Windows 95, and that had no problems with Office 95.
