been there

had to do it on my friend's pentium II. It is not really usable TBH, it is really slow. I also did this on a K6-2 450, still the same

Just to note...

Installing XP on a PII isn't breaking any new journalistic ground. It's well within Microsoft's minimum stated requirements, so far as that goes. Will it be slower then a newer computer? Yeah. Will it run fast enough to be useful? That depends on your patience.

If you're trying to set a record for slowest *possible* Windows XP machine you're going to have a tough time beating these guys:
