    It looks like all you need is standard VIA drivers for that MoBo.
    That means you can do XP just dandy.

    CHIPSET: VIA Apollo KT133A & 686A
    ON BOARD AUDIO: Integrated audio in the VIA 686A
    There was a FIC retail version and a Compaq OEM version.
    As long as the chips on the board are the same (should be) the -drivers- will be the same.

    Where you need to watch it is if/when you go to update the BIOS.
    That may not be the same between versions (but the drivers still are).
