Alright, let's get you going. The surplus motherboard you have should be the same one used in Compaq EVO 410M desktops. Same Intel 845 Chipset, too. Anyway, here's the link for the XP drivers - ought to work with Win2K. If not, then try the NT drivers (Win2K drivers are not available - that version is a tad moldy).

Here's the link to the Compaq download site:

You will want to download drivers for the chipset, usb, video, and audio, plus anything else you see that you might need or want. No guarantees this will work (the hazards of buying a surplus motherboard without drivers), but I suspect it will. Let me know how it goes.
