How large is the hard disk for these OS and can a Win98 system run a gigabyte of RAM?

Question

I would like to know what a difinitive source would be on what operating system (Win95, Win98, ME, XP, NT and 2000) has as limits as to how much memory they can address and how large a hard disk each can handle.

I ask because I get different information from different places. I know a guy who has been through one of the Microsoft training schools. He swears that Win98 can only support drives of up to 40 gigs. Yet, I have 2 systems that run 60 gig drives.

Can a Win98 system run a gigabyte of RAM? I already have a 512 stick. Can I buy more?

Thanks!

Nick

Nick,

Win95/98 has a 30 MB of hard drive space while Windows NT has 120 MB space and Windows 2000 has 650 MB of hard drive space.

I would say yes to you Nick because you have the hard drive to handle it.
