    I have been trying to install Windows XP onto a Compaq 5822 with 317 mb of RAM. I get to within 16 minutes left during the final installation phase and it keep locking up. The green bar only progresses part way but the message screen continues to flash message changes. How can I finish the installation?

    I tried to install right over my existing Windows 98. I accomplished that on my other system without problems.
