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.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
