Because you have only 192Mb RAM and a 500MHz CPU you are going to have to turn off a lot of the XP features to make it run smoothly. If you can add memory it will help a lot but for now try turning off the firewall within WinXP. WinXP runs "OK" on 256Mb RAM but much better on 512Mb RAM, especially on a 500MHz machine.

Until last year December, I had an AMD K6-2 of 450 Mhz and 256 Mb RAM, and XP ran fine on it, too (wow, MS Windows "running fine" - isn't that a contraditio in terminis? :-p )

AssBurn, what internet connection do you have: broadband or dial-up?

XP runs fine on old K6-2 500MHz 256MB PC100 system.

The problem is never XP it is the people who don't understand XP or how to set it up properly. XP is literally just a newer version of Win2k (Win2k is WinNT 5.0 and WinXP is WinNT 5.1), so those that claim 2k is better are actually ignorant of the facts. If you run XP out of the box on a low end machine it will boot and run very slowly. This is simply because of the networking and security services that are running by default. Disabling most of these (as you'll find that you're not using most of them) will give you a much faster boot time and free up the cpu and memory for other apps. I've heard some people refer to XP as a "kiddie OS". Again this is born out of ignorance. The cartoonish welcome screen, fast user switching and the desktop themes service can be disabled. Which will give you an environment virtually identical to all other Windows OS's, though much more stable and with better performance and hardware support.

Voodoo people, didn't you read that?
but when i install my Internet everything is about to be very slow

I think you get the problems right after you connect to internet, because you're attacked by worm virus (a friend of mine had this problem also)
Make a clean install of XP, and aplly SP2 immidietly after, This should avoid most dangers
