Well, assuming you *could* load XP on only 5k of ram, it'd be more like 20
hours than 20 minutes <g>. Try the steps here:

This could be caused by many things - hardware and/or software.
Unfortunately, you haven't included any useful information in your
post, so you can't get a specific answer. Go here to get help in making
a good post:

http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html

Then do come back and repost with all necessary details. There are lots
of people reading this newsgroup who want to help you (like me), but
you have to give us something with which to work.
