Hmmm, it was my old 64 mb K6-2 300 mhz with a 1 gig hard drive.  Ran fine 
until the cpu fan died and the cpu became a puddle one night :-(
If you want to stay on top of Microsoft updates for windows and you don't 
want your 9x machine crashing a lot, then don't install the "critical 
updates notification" as it leads to system instability in 9x.  Just 
remember to visit MS once a month or sign up for their security bulletins.
Now it's on my second hard drive on my K6-2 400 mhz 256 mb.
