since you are using an obsolete model and computer specs, i don't think this can actually support windows XP in optimal settings.. You might want to install windows 98 on this machine to be able to use it properly.
note: you may think that this machine is working really slow because you tend to compare it on the newer machines that you are using. If that's the case, then you are definitely right that it's slower. This is because the machine is really old. KUDOS to you though for having a working machine that is this old. I used to have one about 4 years ago and it was one of the best during its time. :)
what socket is the Pentium 3? Socket A. The sockets have to be compatible for example you can't upgrade a Dual Core for a Core 2 Duo because although the chipsets look the same the motherboard may not support the new instruction set. I had this problem recently as i wanted to upgrade my Intel Celeron D 3.02ghz to the Pentium Dual Core 1.8ghz and although the chips were identical and fitted perfectly in my mobo, the actual mobo i was using (foxconn) wouldnt work with it forcing me to buy an ASRock mobo and replace the entire system.
