. I have XP Pro running on a 550MHz/P3/320MB system, but it is slow. The 64MB of RAM will probably kill you - I'd bump it up to at least 256MB before even trying.

*ahem* *cough* *cough* Puppy linux is the best *cough* *hack* *wheeze*

Seriously- I tried DSL, DeliLite and Puppy, and Puppy blows the other two out of the water. A hard disk install on my old 500MHz PIII with either 32 or 64MB of RAM was blazing fast, and it has media players and office software and stuff out of the box. XP is unnecessary unless you want to run games, in which case enjoy your Quake II with those specs.

No! Puppy Linux, it's actually a lot better than DSL. (-;
