I would recommend XP and a compatible sound card.  Otherwise you will
hear JAWS stuttering, or only talking through one speaker sometimes.
You should call the Freedom Scientific sales department (1-800-444-4443)
to ask them which sound cards are compatible.  Definitely get a multi
channel one.

I have 256 meg of ram, the speed is 1.6 (I don't know the correct
terminology) and a 20 gig hard drive-- I hope I got the terms
correct.-----
