Ah Ha... Windows 2000... That might be an option to consider rather
than Windows Fundamentals for Legacy PCs... I think I might give it a
try before I dump the whole system overboard!



Thanks for the advice,



Patrick.

I have tried setting up a Windows Fundamentals virtual machine in
Virtual PC...I set it up with only 96 MB of RAM to simulate an older
machine. But from what I can tell, Windows Fundamentals shouldn't make
much of a difference in your system; it all depends on how many programs
you run at a time. Windows Fundamentals simply doesn't come with as many
Windows components.



I would have to recommend using Windows 2000 for your older machine if
you find XP sluggish...to tell you the truth, your system specs sound
kind of lousy for XP.
