Re: my old PIII system Actually sound drive not working...
Most of the pIII particularly the sound card if it is built-in, it's compatible with Realtek audio driver, all you have to do is to download the driver over the net and install it, but be sure it is compatible with your system cause error will occur if its not compatible

A new Os (XP) will allow the second drive even if the old one will not. Of course you can always add a USB hard drive and a USB PCI card to make it all work. What are you using this pc for seems a little old for todays applications. Suggestion If your going to use this that you Replace the main hard drive with a 120GB or larger, new video card at least 256MB if not 512 and at least 1 gig of memory as I believe it will only take a max of 1 gig. you cannot use vista as it requires more resources than this Pc can give to support the OS. you may want to try XP LITE as well one you get XP installed to speed it up a bit!
i cannot give you a specific list of models but in general every pentium 3 cpu with a front side bus [FSB] frequency not greater then 133 mhz should work on that chipset. i also do not know where you could find a pentium 3 cpu for sale.
Front Panel Connector
The front panel header is where the connectors of hard disk drive activity lights, case speaker, reset button, power on/off button, computer power on light, and key lock, are connected to make them function smoothly. In the past days, users always have difficulty connecting the front panel due to a lack of standard location on the motherboard. Today, AOpen integrated all these disorder but essential front panel connectors into one 20-pin connector for easy usage. Connecting the front panel would no longer be the headache of installing motherboard anymore. Below is a view of this user-friendly front panel connector of AOpen motherboard.
That computer uses a proprietary motherboard. Only that one or one from the same Gateway family will fit, and the power supply from an old PIII will not work with the newer systems. Don't waste your cash.

Go to this link to download drivers, although you will have to input the operating system as you don't mention which you are using.
This should do it.
