i have a friend who has an athlon 1.33 mhz pc currently running windows me.

performance is very slow and i am thinking of installing xp to replace me as the os.

is the pc fast enough for xp or should i install windows 98 ? (i dont have windows me disk!)

I would go with WinXP if you have (or can get at least) 256MB RAM; win98 if anything less.

XP will run fine on an Athlon 1.3 processor.
