Well i assume you talk about Dell notebook. I think this model was with Banias Pentium M.

There should be no problem with windows XP and Pentium M combination - that notebooks was shipped with windows XP. In some cases there was second generation Pentium M CPU in Dell D600 - with 2MB L2 cache, code name Dothan. On motherboards with 533 FSB support they can be overclocked above 2Ghz and be really fast. As far as i remember some desktop motherboards from DFI and A-Open was available, back then, for mobile socket 479. What motherboard and CPU exactly you planning to use? There can be really cool overclock variants in case of Dothan.
