Question on Installation on My System
This question is prompted by an associate who's having problems installing
Vista on his older system.

I've run upgrade advisor which indicates my hardware should handle Vista
just fine. It's an older Gateway with the following specs: Pentium 4 1.8gz,
1gig of RDRAM, nVidia Geforce 5200 128mb AGP, 120gig HD, DVD RW, CD RW,
Soundblaster Live Value, Linksys 100TX Ethernet card.

Would appreciate any thoughts/input. Anyone running a similar system w/o
any issues?

P4 3.0, NV5200 (128 AGP), DVD, CD, originally SB Live Value!...

SB Live Value! utils will likely not run, but the card should work okay
using the drivers that Vista installs. That is an older, non-supported
card, so don't look to Creative for updates. They have yet to port the
software extras (bundled w/many cards) to Vista - and may never. It
handles audio in a different manner than its predecessors.

On this peppy system, Aero runs fine. Memory usage, with browser and
perhaps another app. open, is about 43-50%. CPU while I am typing this,
or surfing pages, is 1-5%. No games (except Solitaire) tested.

Individual drivers for your hardware may or may not be Vista compatible.
See manufacturer's WEBsites for possible updates.
