    Hi, I am running Windows 98 right now. I would like to upgrade my OS to Windows XP. How can I determine whether or not my computer meets the following requirements? Where do I look for each asterick? What can I do if it doesn't meet them?

    Here's What You Need to Use Windows XP Home Edition:

    *PC with 300 megahertz (MHz) or higher processor clock speed recommended; 233-MHz minimum required;

    * Intel Pentium/Celeron family, AMD K6/Athlon/Duron family, or compatible processor recommended

    *128 megabytes (MB) of RAM or higher recommended (64 MB minimum supported; may limit performance and some features)

    *1.5 gigabyte (GB) of available hard disk space.

    *Super VGA (800 × 600) or higher resolution video adapter and monitor

    Any advice is greatly appreciated! Thanks!
