I want to install a network with a Pentium PC with WXp Pro, and connected to this 10 PC's with W98, Me and XP Home but I don't know if this will run, and how many PC's support my server.

yes it will work. win9x, ME, XP Pro and Home will all play together in a workgroup. you can have up to 10 workstations. you may want to confirm that simplified file sharing is enabled, as others have is excerpt from mskb article 307874 about how to do that...
How to Disable Simple File Sharing
Click Start, and then click My Computer.
On the Tools menu, click Folder Options, and then click the View tab.
In the Advanced Settings section, clear the Use simple file sharing (Recommended) check box.
Click OK
