I've heard that Windows XP will absolutely refuse to install to anything lower than P-II 233MHz. Is this true? How can I force setup to ignore the speed of the CPU? The system in question has 256MB of RAM and a Pentium MMX 200MHz.

So, yes, it can be installed. The site doesn't tell you how, though.

I use a P200 as a test box. Make sure it has atleast 128MB and it will install just fine. It will be quite slow though.
What if everything around you, isn't quite as it seems...

And if you look at your reflection, Is that all you want to be?
What if you could look right through the cracks, Would you find yourself... find yourself afraid to see?

Does anyone know what setup /nm does?

it made windows skip the hardware check on windows 98 install (so if you had a really old computer it would still install)

not sure if that works with XP, though..
