What is NetMeeting's equivalent in Windows XP?
All versions on the microsoft website are for 95, 98, NT, and 2K..

If no equivalent, is there anything (preferably free) that could be used in XP in place of NetMeeting?

Hi!  Windows XP includes Windows Messenger, which is the XP version of MSN Messenger but also includes audio/video-conferencing capabilities for two people.  It won't allow more than two, however, so if you need more than that you'll have to use another program.  Two more thought... I think NetMeeting will run in XP, and if it doesn't you might be able to use the Program Compatibility function in XP (accessible through Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel) to allow it to do so.  Good luck...
