I can't seem to find any specs on that model. What country are you in?

There's a pretty good chance that the 80gb HDD will be recognized. Computers that old usually only had problems with HDDs that were larger than 120gb or so.

You still have the Restore CD?

I'd not recommend upgrading to XP... It'll be painfully slow with the 533 MHz??? CPU, max 256 MB RAM...
