Get 64 bit version of XP. Install and enjoy. Just for the record though Win7 handles multicore processors much better than XP.

Find drivers for your motherboard. That might be the tricky part.

The issue is not with the processor but with drivers for the rest of the hardware. The CPU will run whatever is asked of it, but the motherboard, video card, network card, etc.. all need to be supported under XP. Check for drivers for your system from the vendor(s).
