The real advantage is that is does not 'authenticate' with Micro$oft, so you can install multiple copies; not legally but it will install. It too is not supported anymore but it is certainly better than 98 or 95.
Get a program called siw.exe. If it runs under your O/S it will tell you what kind of memory & how much your system can take. You get a lot of useful info.
I agree with this option. Win 2000 is a very stable platform that does not require a whole lot of resources and runs very well on older PCs.
You could also see if there are any DOS based anti-virus programs still out there.
