Run Everest on it and see if it gives you more of a description of the motherboard: http://www.majorgeeks.com/download4181.html

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).
