    Quick answer -Yes But, and you knew there was a but, if you want to make your drives NTFS you will have to format the drives when you install. NTFS has tremendous advantages over FAT32 namely stability and speed. So if you are going to upgrade, back up your data and do a fresh install.

    You should have NO problem at all, with those specs
    I run Xp on a 633mhz, 128ram machine, and it works fine. Just a little slower than what is
    usually deemed "acceptable".

    win98 won't work on NTFS so you need to make partitions
