Question about Compaq Presario 5020 (320830-003) PC Desktop
That PC's minimum memory is 64 MB of RAM with a maximum upgradeable memory capacity of 768 MB. It also comes with a factory installed AMD Duron 900 MHz or a 1.0/1.1/1.2 GHz CPU.
According to MS's specifications XP will run on a minimum of 128 MB of RAM and a 233 MHz CPU.
So, yes, you should be able to upgrade to XP, just keep in mind that you'll need a bare minimum of 128 MB of system RAM to get XP to work with your PC.
I'd suggest you get the maximum RAM this system allows if you want to multitask without seeing a significant slowdown of your processing.

Yes, but it will be somewhat slow on such a old computer. I would recommend getting a new computer or buying a newer used computer, for example from ebay.

Testimonial: "That is what I thought, just needed confirmation."
Some dude made an special xp which needs similiar to your computer specs. i believe it was named tinybeast edition of xp. windows folders' size is only 321,6 mb and eats 42 mb ram. many of normal xp's extras and services been removed in that edition. but you can connect to internet and do stuff. i did use that when i bought an old computer and turned it to a web server. Heck, i even tried to make a dedicated server of cstrike! it worked.
