Linux - Puppy Linux, Damn Small Linux, ArchLinux, and Possibly Xubuntu (if your computer can handle it) are all geared towards older hardware

I'd be inclined to clean it up and use if for a linux machine or winnt3.51 or *possibly NT4, but nothing beyond that. The system is just too slow for the overhead of the newer OSes, even if the hardware can be used.

Well,If it is 400MHz With at least 128MB of Ram Or more,I recommend XP,You can Download Windows XP From Here
Here are Some links

I am Not Quite sure it that one is Right,You Can Try Others
Just Go Here for a Search
I downloaded One from here and it was perfect,it was,if i have not mistaken,Exactly 700MB
http://rapidshare-search-engine.com/index-s_submit=Search&sformval=1&s_type=0&what=1&s=windows%2Bxp%2B9in1&start=0.html
I Recommend that you Try These Out In Virtual PC Or Virtual Box,Before Burning A CD,Also To Verify.
Here are Some Tools,For XP.

Be Sure to Download it now,It Can Only Be Downloaded 10 Times.
And It will Become Invalid after 90 Days.
That is probably the Most important Part,Unless If you Want to Handle Several Phone Calls and Probably a few Weeks of time,not to mention 200 Bucks.

If it's Win98 it will probably be quite old. What is the current spec' and what do you need it to do (upgraded on the cheap)? L
