It can run w/ M$ 95.  Personally, I've never done this, but I know others
who have.

Depends.  Origionally, it's text based.  If you want, you can install X,
which can make it look like windows

It'll run on a standalone compputer.  I've insatlled FreeBSD on 200MB, but
I'd suggest at least 1GB if you dont have alot of RAM (<64MB), and if you
want to run X.  It all depends on what you want it to do.
