PC with 300 megahertz or higher processor clock speed recommended; 233 MHz minimum required.


Your pc has a 466 mhz processor so yes it will run. Might be sluggish at times but it will run it fine.


It that all you needed to know bro?

If you bought from a company, it will work. You will have to do a full format on the harddrive then install the os.


I didnt know what you were talking about either cots.. lol



If you bought from a store like walmart, bestbuy or bought from an online store it will work. Is that what you mean lol?

it would be best to boot from the cd and allow the system setup to run.

have you ever installed an O/S?

your profile says you already use windows xp...have you ever installed it?
all you need to do is boot from the CD and follow the steps...it's relatively intuitive...and it isn't a command line utility...it's not necessarily a GUI interface but it's decidedly not CLI
