Well, no problem here, i don't use the BDE (never have, never will)...;-)))

How do you define underpowered? The least powerfull machine i have used it 
on for a while was a Pentium 233, 64MB RAM and 2x8GB HD...., normally i use 
either a PII/300, 192MB, 10+20GB at home or a PIII/450, 256MB, 10+30GB at 
work, both with Delphi 5 (Standard and Enterprise), while i currently run 
Kylix on a K6-2/300 with 128MB RAM....
