I have win98 on a 486 66, with 20m fast page (not even edo).
I have a client with 98 on a 486/66 and 16m 30pin fpm ram as well, and hers 
is fat 16. Mine is at least, fat 32. I found a fdisk switch that makes under 
504m hdd fat 32 capable.
It will run, but its no speed demon, email apparently takes very little 
resources to run.
