I ran XP on a 300mhz desktop once... so slow. Better off with windows 2000 on such an old machine IMO.

I'm just impressed with this Toshiba laptop. Even after these years, it could still run XP. Everything runs great on this thing. I think it started with 95.

95
98
2000
XP

Four generations of operating systems right there.
