    Get real dude! You asked a question, I answered the question. You didn't like the answer. That makes me rude? Go back to your first post and read it. You asked "is it possible to install Win XP Pro on 48 megs of ram?" I gave you the minimum system requirements as per M$. Do with that what you will...I'm done.

    Last Word?

    64 mb min.? Thats what BiLl GaTeS says. BiLl GaTeS doesnt tell you everything. He is not even honest with you. He lies. Does he really lie? Yes he does. When did he lie.? HE NEVER SAYS WINDOWS SUX. But the good news is you are smart enough to figure that out . If you cant figure that out it's not because you are not smart enough or you are stupid, it's because you work for BiLl GaTeS. I think BiLl GaTeS is a nice person. So i guess problem is not BiLl GaTeS the problem is windowzzzz.

    You know what, install it on whatever the hell you want. Everybody has already told you how to do it(hint, hint). If you want to try it, then it won't matter what eveyone here is tryyyyying to tell you. Now will it? That what these forums are for, you ask and someone with knowledge or experience gives you their sound advice. If you don't want that knowledge then step right up into the dark void all by your lonesome. Be sure to post later when you run into problems.
