I have Windows NT Workstation 4.0 CD-ROM, but haven't installed it yet.  I have a 486DX4/100MHz with 16MB RAM.  Does anyone have experience running NT on such machine?  Is it painfully slow?  Is it enough memory to run Office?  Can you run Visual C++ 5.0 on it?  (I know it says it needs 20MB for 95 and 24MB for NT, but I have been able to run it under 95 with only 16MB.)

Ye sit will run, but it will be slow.. The cpus isnt the problem as much as the RAM.. 16MB only leaves you about 4MB For applications, you can figure the rest out from there.

I have run NT4 on a 486DX50 and had it run smoothly.. on the other hand the machine had 96MB RAM.
