30GB is ok for hard disk size, more relevant is RAM & CPU.

A thank you would be nice, if I have helped.

mrshazell you should be able to install xp on that hardware but you will be very disappointed that you did.

xp will be extremely slow.

This hardware it too old and you don't have enough memory. It is not cost effective to upgrade the hardware.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

If its just for internet, why not install a Linux distro, & before you say, "I don't know anything about Linux"

You don't need to, burn a live cd the installation is pretty easy. In fact, you can run a Live cd to see if you like it, you don't even have to install to begin with.

I would say the only problem might be getting drivers for say printers webcams etc

Ubuntu is the most popular, download the live cd, burn as an iso, them boot from it.

That will give you a taster, there will be an Icon on the desktop, that is how you start the install to hard drive.

I agree about Linux but I disagree about Ubuntu. For one thing, 256MB really isn't enough RAM to run it decently. For another, I think you would be better off with a Linux version that's more windows-like. I suggest Mint Linux XFCE 201104 32-bit which was just released a few days ago:

Thats the good thing about a Live cd. You can see which one you like.

DSL Dam small Linux needs very few resources.
