    It's a Gateway, with 96 MBs of RAM, a Pentium II Processor, and as of now I'm running Windows 98SE. I need to upgrade because of the FAT32/4 Gigabyte maximum thing.

    I think you can upgrade it to windows 2000, but of course it would be slower than your windows 98

    It would be slow. I would suggest a computer upgrade. Not a OS upgrade.

    indeed, or use a Linux distribution that's more geared towards really old hardware.

    Thanks you guys, I wish I COULD get a computer Upgrade, but since I'm only a master wizard when it comes to software, not Hardware, I would be completely lost if I were to try and mess with my PC Hardware stats.

    I have an OLD Compaq server. A Pentium 120, 2 4gig SCSI drives, and 128mb of RAM. Its running Win2K server. Its actually my domain at my house for my home network. Takes about 10-15 minutes to boot, but once up it runs fine. I would up the RAM for sure, but the rest should be OK.
