I read the thread over at computing.net just now. I'm having trouble locating a picture of the internals of the Deskpro 4000 online but I know Compaq did some pretty non-standard things back in the day.
Yea, try upgrading the processor - it's not going to cost much to try. Much as WebsWonder commented, I've been throwing out everything below 2ghz at work.
The 2mb S3 Graphics was great for its day. Look around on eBay and find a PCI interface card with 8 meg of ram or better. An ATI 7000 series would be good n cheap but even a Rage 128 would be an improvement over what you have now.
I honestly don't know if upgrading to 333 mhz is going to produce smooth video for you. I upgraded my son's Compaq Armada 1750 from a P-II 333 to a P-III 500, bumped the memory up to the max 312, and installed a 7200 rpm hard drive. It streams video just fine on XP Home.
