    the wireless software would probably use 8mb on its own, before you even load a browser etc ontop of that. See if you can get an old Cisco 340 card (they definatly have drivers that go that far back - i use the CE 3.11 ones) and some more ram for it.

    My dad uses a Win 95 laptop and a Cisco 352 card. The driver runs the card so no software is needed but it would be better to get some more memory.
