Re: Question regarding minimum OS required for Z22

I know, I will eventually either install more 
memory & upgrade to XP
or toss the computer & get an upgraded one, or get 
a floppy drive
off EBay.
It's my wife's computer, she doesn't use it much, 
but she uses
her PP a lot & really needs to upgrade from her

I'd  be worried about the destiny of that machine 
more than I would  worry
about  Zire  compatibility. Windows 2000 lacks 
security in its own  right.
Not patching it up makes it very vulnerable, 
especially while connected to
the World Wide Web.

In  principle,  you can get a Palm handheld to 
work with Windows  98  (and
maybe Windows 95 as well). I was using a Tungsten 
with a Windows 98 laptop
for  a while. I suggest you worry about patches 
more than about communica-
tion via USB, which should be fine.

Hope it helps,
