    aside from more ram I think he's okay
    Windows 7 RC Tester.  Working on it.  Your monitor says etchasketch on the side!

    If I fall who is there to pick me up now.  I stand alone but I stand as the gaurdian for whom I wish to protect.  The sound of my blade utters my name as you fall.  For I shall not move.  For those that forsake the very people are wosres

      Proccessor Speed, HD space...yea he may be able to run it on minimum req.
      But it would be kinda pointless...

      This is a machine originally designed for windows 95.

      Windows XP will run slowly without extensive upgrades to RAM, processor, and video components.

          Heck might even just replace the motherboard while your at it.  ;)

            Which all makes your point moot.

                xp well run on an 95 comp, i've run it on an old 486 and a p1 so if its at leest a p2 then no problem,(runs just as good a 98 on a p2)
                the problem comes with hdd space you need at lest 3 gig of hdd
                1 gig to load xp
                1 gig to hold all the windows fixes
                and 1 gig for all the other apps needed to run it

                    If he wants to get Win98Se then so be it, all he needs is the Win98SE installation CD.

                    no CD, no 98

                    End of story.

                    XP refuses to install on anything less then a pentium with MMX.

                    recommended RAM for Windows 95 is 4MB.

                    recommended RAM for Windows XP is 256MB.

                    And windows 98 will ALWAYS be faster on a pentium 2. You are vending lies.


                    Windows 95 will install/run on any 386 or higher processor. XP will NOT install on a 486.
