How well will windows xp run on this config? My dad wants to install windows xp on his home computer.

Should I recommend that he install windows 2000 instead?

i ran xp on alot less. it workd fine, on my old pentium I or II (i forgot which) 200 mhz with 90 something ram.
I'd say XP would run OK on that system, better than Win2k even. XP has better memory management than 2k does, and you can tweak the startup process to better match the system hardware.
I'd be ok with it.
