It came originally with Win98se. In attempting to get the machine to boot from the CD, I can get to the main Mint menu if I'm lucky (maybe on every 5th try). I've tried to install Mint twice and both times the installation stalled out about 1/2-way through (Progress meter got to 46% and never went higher after hours of waiting). It would seem that this old of a machine is simply not able to handle the demands of a new OS like Mint 5.
