I have an IBM WorkPad Z50 (141 Mhz NEC MIPS VR4121, 16Mb RAM, upgradable to 48Mb.) and I want to use Pocket DOS. What are the latest operating systems that will work at a reasonable speed, with or without the 486 plug in?

I would like to use Windows 95, NT4, and OS/2 Warp 4.

Dear Sir,

A 140Mhz MIPS processor will not be powerful enough to run much more than DOS (at 80286 speeds).

Thank you for your interest.

I didn't think so, but I had to ask. Thanks.
