pro or home its 1 liscenced copy per computer who ever told you other wise was wrong
you need at least 256 ram / 512 is better
10 gig hard drive or larger decent speed cpu
id say 500 or more cpu speed
im deciding if im going to buy XP home edition or pro.
the only reason i would buy pro is because i was told you can install it on multiple computers.
my main concern is if dismantle my computer and replace everything, which i tend to do every so often, am i going to have to buy a whole new disk?
