is the qx9650 proc compatable with the msi p6n sli board?

is the intel qx9650 yorkfeild processor compatable with the msi p6n sli platinum?

the manual that came with the mother board says yes, newegg says yes. but the msi website says no.

this is why i ask,
after installing windows xp pro 64 bit on to the system, i couldnt get online. so i popped the msi drivers and utilities disc into the bay and it gave me an error. saying its not compatable with my os.

the board, processor and all "must-be-compatable" componets, are compatable with eachother(or they are suppose to be) and the 64 bit xp os i bought.

there is only one thing i made a mistake on, and it may or maynot have an effect on it. i bought the oem version of the os by mistake.
