cannot run XP application in 2000 Pro?

I'm looking to buy a certain piece of software for my wife (Polaroid scrapbook suite) but it says "Windows XP and above.". I called their "tech support" hot-line and asked if it would run under 2000 Pro and was told no but they couldn't tell me why. I know, just switch, right? I remember there used ...

dual monitors, dual pc's, cheapest way?

I have 2 pc's that are dual monitor capable and 2, 20" VGA displays, would like to control both from one keyboard and one mouse but don't want to spend a lot.

Cheapest dual monitor, dual pc kvm switch I can find is $100.00 USD!

Ideas please?

Surre will! As long as the wires are not on the backside of the board completing the PIII mod it will run. In fact, it is MUCH MORE STABLE than the stock board.

Both these boards will easilly run 366's above 550 rock solid!

Yep!, no-go.

I am re-formatting and reloading OS's because BSOD said it couldn't fined "boot device" in win2k with hard drive on 80 pin cable and on IDE-3.

Works great in win98se with same setup, cable(s) and hdd settings.

May have to do a low-level format.
