  1. If your board posts, then I would go into the bios and set the cpu fsb manually if possible to the maximum setting. Some older boards have this option; some not. The board may not recognize the newer cpu core, but will still run. Flashing the bios is only an option if the bios version is for your new cpu. If not, no point in risking having a dead board with a bad flash.
  2. There are two revisions of that board. Rev 1.x does not support the Athlon XP 2200+. Rev 2.x does. Make sure you have the correct motherboard to support the new processor.
