I found this German site today that aimed to test what the minimum hardware requirements for running Windows XP really were. They got it down to 7Mhz with an 18MB of ram (system info lies a little bit.) Important to note that XP did not install on a 486, visit this site
probably due to difference in memory controllers, but 8MHz Pentium is not too much of a step up.
