Just pop in a livecd or 98 and get the files onto a floppy, then put 95 or 98SE on it if you can. blackzmage, you know good and well a computer running ME couldn't possibly even run the install wizard for Vista. Maybe 2000 if your lucky, but Vista would kill that comptuer in a matter of seconds XD

Ok really....Obviously XP won't run on that computer if it is running ME, and what Mailas said. The most you could upgrade that computer to is 98/2000 if your lucky. DUHHHHHH
