Win XP - System Requirements

Would Win XP work on a Packard Bell Celeron 500Mhz with 9Gb Hard Drive and 64 Mb of Ram. That is what a friend has asked and I reckon it would - albeit a bit sluggish!

Is this correct?

I have it running on a Dell laptop with 466 Celeron, but I do have 128Mb RAM. It is a little sluggish to load.

NO!!!!! You need at least 128Mb RAM to run XP and 256 to run it effectively. 9 gig HDD will bo ok as long aws she does not want to add a lot of data and don't expect it to run particularly quickly. 98SE is your best bet and even then I would stick some more memory in.

HTH
