use the windows 7 compatability advisor. Just google for it.
1st of all, you need at LEAST 1GB ram to run a 32 bit install

Some HELP in posting on Computing.net plus free progs and instructions Cheers

Unless it is a very new laptop you would be better off with xp.

Agreed. WinXP barely runs using only 256Mb RAM.

Note: RAM is cheap these days.
Go to www.crucial.com and run it's scanner to see what and how much you can upgrade your RAM to.
If 1Gb then Win7 runs fine with only 1Gb RAM as mine does.
