Thank you it's a P3 with a 500 cpu and 350+ megs ram, and a few background programs doing different things that it's nice to have going. It runs at a decent speed now on Win98, but I wouldn't want it to run too much slower, no more than say 10% slower if that, which is why I was wondering about the amount of slowing down with a switch to XP. I see an ebay offer for Linux Mandrake 9 for $20, but when I asked them if it would run with AdSubtract banner blocker, TextAssist 4, MailWasher, and a few other things, they never even bothered to reply.
