Depends what you mean by "work." You may not be able to cram enough RAM into a 
Pentium 4 system to satisfy Windows 8. If you can, it'll likely be just on the 
threshold of "able to run at all."

You'll have similar problems with hardware-accelerated graphics. Pentium 4 
also isn't 64-bit, so make sure you have 32-bit Windows 8.

All that said, I don't really think it'll "work" in the sense of being a 
basically usable system; but TIAS.
