win98SE all upgrades
1/2 meg mem
C drive for software
D drive vitual mem(as much as neded)
AOL 9.0 security version
Mac personnel express

Can't seem to find anything that is using mem or resources??

512MB, then?
You're aware of Win 98 bug, which will cause "low memory" error, if more than 512MB is installed?
