I ran it well at 192 Megs RAM for a couple years, using about 4.5 megs of HD for XP and Office. (128+64)

Of course they've added bloatware since then. Avoid all the latest media player and IE stuff.

There are streamlined versions where you build a customized install CD. Search the threads in here. I'm pretty sure someone posted about them lately.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
