I've run XP, on a Dell, xps.. It was a Pent II, 300mhz processor, and 96mb ram, with a 10gb hard drive!

That will be FINE!

XP is low demand. You should be able to do that. It'll be crazy slow. If I was him i'd stick without XP until he gets a better PC for speed reasons.

Installed and it worked great! Just bought another copy of XP and was wondering, do you think it would install on a PII 350MHz Processor, 256MB Ram? I highly doubt it... :P Just wondering if it can get much worse than running 98
