hi

got old pc (350 processor, 64Mb ram, 4Gb) which will only be used for internet/word/excel. i have unused xp pro disk/license. for the internet security features on xp and service pack 2 is it worth putting it on such a low spec pc or will it just be impossibly slow.

cheers

I would be suprised if it worked at all with 64mb of Ram and by the time XP and SP2 are loaded there will be little space left for anything else on a 4G drive.

Do you have a copy of win 98se that would be better on that machine?

thanks guys - i'll stick to reformat/install of 98se
