yup u can install XP on it,it wuld run fine just get a copy of Xp antispy and disable all visual effects , it shuld wrk fine. but maybe the space can give ya some trouble as over a period of month as software gets insatlled then the XP will go slower.

Yes you can but I would ask you to consider windows 2000 as then you wouldn't have the bother of trimming the bloat that comes with winxp ;)

i had suggest linux. but then linux are heavy in gui. windows 98 is ur best bet. though i had recommend using win2k and suffer some speed issues than stability issues on 98.

Linux isn't heavy on GUI ... GNOME and KDE are ...I have seen 2000/XP with tweaks running on lower configs, so it shouldn't be a problem. Your config is quite good.You can run -Windows 2000Windows XP (with tweaks)Windows 98 SE (and under)Linux with X-Windows and KDE (with tweaks) or a lighter WM like IceWM

*Sorry for double post*If you lack something, its free space, so best bet is to free a lot of space before thinking about another OS.
