the system specs are:

120 Mhz Pentium 1
64 MB SDRAM
3 GB HD
Old-school mobo (AT connectors)

i imagine it could handle 98 or 2000 no problem, but xp would just break the system down, LOL

XP barely runs on a 400 mhz machine, and takes forever to install. XP would break it. 2000 might too, I'd just go with 98 if I were you.

xp runs suprisingly fast on a friends 266mhz Cele machine because he has 7200rpm ATA 133 HDD on a ATA card

ok, i will take your advice waynejkruse10, and install windows 98SE on it. Will a computer that old be able to handle a USB PCI card? (Its already installed on the machine)
