Let me see since you didn't explain your need clearly.

Do you need CPU,RAM,VideoCard,SoundCard,LanCard,Keyboard,Mouse ,Monitor,and Case. If that's what you need, then just go to google and type any of those words to find comparison in prices or any reviews about good whatever. If you don't need that, then try to find a manual of the mobo,or the name and download manual from the mobo. Then just follow the instructions.

Ask your friend to give you the motherboard document that will tell you all information of components on your board ; what's the funtion , how to connect it ......
Briefly , image 1 is jumper .
image 2 is AGP for video card
image 3 is connection to your on/off switch on front panel , fan , speaker........ Again , check your documentation , or check your motherboard manufactor web site , you may find your answer

that **** is too old anyways, I suggest you buying some new equip. You can be able to gather something together for $400 or even less.

From waht i could see in the Pic .. the board's an FIC VB-601...

This board supports only Intel(R) Pentium(R) II 233-450
Intel(R) Celeron(TM) 266-300, 300A

Either of which processors u might have a hard time looking for !

Also the AGP slot cannot take any of the newer AGP cards ...

As far as the jumper setting's go .. u'll need to find a processor before thinking of setting 'em ....

before you get started, make sure the motherboard works =p
Anyways, altho reading the diagram for the prongs can be hard on some motherboards, get the manual for the mobo off the manufacturers website.

unfortionately the Processor alone will almost cost you that .Where is the processor at .Your friend has no need for it .
I actually have 1 of these boards in my 1st system from gateway
still works and use it for Shop AllData .It has a PIII 700 CPU
Heck i even ran a Leadtek Ti-4600 VC in it for fun .The system played BatteZone perfectly . You could probably find what you need to get this 1 working . But you need to study alot on how to build a computer .Your 1st step is to get download the manual for the mobo at the Manufacture site and read up on everything .Then find some places to study like How to build a Computer . Itll be a learning experience if you choose to do it .
Good luck .
