Windows me 2000 or xp for Inspiron 8100 to play pentium 3 compatible games?

On a low-spec machine, go with Windows 2000. That was a good version, very solid and reliable.

XP is probably ok, depending on how much ram you have. Win2000 will run ok as well. Maximum ram in the 8100 is supposed to be 512MB. You need 512MB for XP to run well.
I've run 2000 ok in an old PII with 384MB. Not the fastest machine, but it ran ok with networking and such.
