Doubtful. Possibly through switches on the mobo, but it would probably either fry the CPU or just not boot up.

As long as it works...

My other computer is a P2 233MHz Packard Bell. As soon as I get a rounter and a NIC card, it's going online as well.

Same thing here,Xp worked ok on my p2-350 but like you said you have to tweak it so it run's fairly good,The more memory you have the smoother it will run.
