Hi my mums comp has win 98 installed. would it be worthwhile installing XP or will that slow things down too much? I once got '98 installed on an old comp years ago that originally had '95 & I had to bin it afterwards as it just went SO slow!
Approx specs are: 800mhz,112Mb RAM,20GbHD.:confused:

I wouldn't install XP with any less than 256mb of ram - any less and it's just too too slow.:eek:

i put it on a laptop 500cpu 128ram its not to slow but my son has it on a 400cpu with 64ram and its slow to load but once loaded is fine (my main one is p4 2.4gig 512ram and yes its a lot faster) i also have it on my spare 800cpu 128ram and that one works really well:) as always the more ram the better:)
