Windows 7 on a Dinosaur !
W7 runs on a P2 with 266MHz CPU, 96MB RAM & 4Mb graphic card !
i have done 3 tests: 2 successfull...
1. 128 MB RAM
2. 96 MB ram
take a look at the screenshots...
on my third test with 64 MB i got some errormessages about "insufficient memory", then it rebooted...
i also have a P1 with 166Mhz CPU & 1MB Graphic card, without the powersupply-unit,
as i have used it for some tests on another PC.
If i can find the Powersupply-unit, i´m going to test the P1 tomorrow...

Great! It's is the best OS by MS so far.
Excellent job! I just posted about your test on my blog, as I'm sure a lot of my readers will be interested! Keep us posted for your test on a 166MHz machine (if you find the power supply, that is). =)

Windows 7 rocks, best OS to date, loving every minute of this experience, it's so smooth I'm not surprised it runs on old systems.
