Windows Millenium Is not recommeded as it was never very stable and has no support anymore

Although it also has no more support , Windows 2000 Pro is far more stable and requires the following minimum system specs

Minimum Requirements Computer/Processor 133 MHz or higher Pentium-compatible CPU Memory 64 megabytes (MB) of RAM recommended minimum; more memory generally improves responsiveness Hard Disk 2GB hard disk with a minimum of 650MB of free space

Look Here and you will see that you laptop can have up to 144MB memory. 16mb is non removable and the rest is by replaceing the current 64mb stick with a 128mb stick instead.

This caught my attention

" picked up a 30GB Toshiba disk today, but wasn't sure it would fit. some old BIOSes won't recognise large disks. I was worried that my Tosh would only recognise up to about 8GB, which is apparently the largest disk size you can fit in the model below mine.
It was, however, just plug and play. I swapped out the disks, noting that the new disk is half the thickness of the old one, despite having 15 times as much storage, and powered up. Starting up the RedHat install showed that my Tosh was now equipped with a 30GB hard drive. Pretty cool really, for a Pentium 133."

Yes hes running linux , not windows but it looks like you can have a 30gb drive in the laptop intead of the 2gb.

Memory Up-Grade


hi there, the memory slot is under the main case. lift the computer up from the front and you will see a panel on the left with two small screws. undo these two screws and you will see the memory card. they have also two small screws that must be removed to be able too remove the card.
