What sort of OS's - do some research on Google and Wikipedia, and then go to the manufacturers website to find the system requirements.

PS: Please don't bump your own posts within 24 hours. In your case, you bumped it in 3 minutes. This is not good for getting valuable responses ...

In addition to not asking us to do your homework, you certainly cannot expect us to bail you out just before finals.

Homework or not, the way to get help here is to post questions to which you already know part of the answer.

Your question almost comes across as: "How does a computer work?"

Or no different to

Urgent help needed. My mouse is dead!
---------------------------------------------
However, if you are smart you would have posted the question as

I have a task to find 4 operating systems suitable for a school. The available choices appear to be Dos, Windows XP, Linux and BSD.

I wonder if anybody can help me to establish the minimum recommended rerquirements to run these systems.

Maybe some help in how to look would help. Go to google and enter OS system requirements. That will pull up a lot of answers. Sort through them until you find the one's you want.

Wow... Once again the Linux form doens't degrade into "u stoopid n00b.." I'm impressed with you guys!

But.. Google is one of the greatest resources to find most information, as is the wikipedia.

I would take all the advice above, and after you gather some questions feel free to come back if you have any questions about things you don't understand!
