This should be transparent to the OS if the board's firmware is designed correctly.  Yes, it should have no problems.

As long as the devices on the MB are standard ones ie: serial, ide, standard RAM DIMMS or SIMMS, etc you should have no problemns.

If you can provide more detail about the MB such as manufacture and model number, I can check out more about it.

I am looking at buying the Asus P3V4X Apollo Pro 133A Slot 1 Motherboard.  It has 4x DIMM for up to 2 GB of PC133/HSDRAM Memory.  It is also capable of using a 233-733+MHz Coppermine and Celeron processors.  This motherboard is listed on the asus.com site under the new P3 series.

thanks for the help
