Hi everybody,
I urgently need to purchase and configure 5 PCs with
Windows NT 4.0 OS. PCs must have at least one ISA slot for
an old ISA board. The driver of this board only works with
NT 4.0 (that's why I can't use 2000 or XP).
Where should I buy this stuff (OS and PCs) being 100% sure
it works without problems?
I heard about installing XP and then downgrade the system,
does this sound OK?
Regards,
Pier

You cannot down grade a system after installing XP. It would be a new
install so I don't see any point in installing XP first. If you don't
already own the NT4 software I don't know where your going to get it. You'll
have to search around. I would check with some of your local PC suppliers to
find this stuff. Your talking about a OS that is 10 years old already!
