    :?: my brothers has an old micron PC he dusted off from his closet, to
    start reusing. He some how loaded XP on it just before he stop using
    it. He want to reload a program that his current XP system will not
    allow because of expiration of the software's trail period.

    The old PC is a pentium 133MHZ, with 97280K memory from the BIOS POST,
    and a 2111MB hard drive (i think ~ 2G). From my XP text book i can
    see these spec are in suffucient. i recommend to him he get a win
    98SE CD and remove XP. The AT Mobo has a socket 5 ZIF for the
    pentium. is there a later model pentium that will fit?

    Do any one know the minimum and the recommended system specs for a win
    98 SE? would this be a better move than trying to upgrade the CPU.

    Windows 98 needs a 486DX 66Mhz, 16MB ram, 225MB HD to run.

    Upgrading the CPU would be pretty pointless, imo.

    For a system this old, I'd just install win98[/quote:1d7c57973d]





    I did just that (install Win98 SE) and it worked like a charm. thanx
    for the help.
