WOW! That is a rocking computer right there lol. The best thing you could do is uninstall windows XP and put windows 2000 on there. Sure it doesnt have all the "Glitz and Glam" but it will run a whole lot faster. If you have your heart set on running windows XP, you will have to turn off a lot of startup items. But I have a friend with a 500 Mhz CPU and 256 MB of memory, and his runs fine. Just make sure your not running a whole lot of startup programs.
BTW if you got it from a flea market, you might want to reformat anyway, even if you are going to use Windows XP on it. No way of telling if the copy is truly "Legit". That and it will run faster after a reformat anyways :D
