Took two seconds to look it up. Yes, it supports Slot A Athlon Processor up to 850Mhz.

Try breaking the computer down to it's basic configuration. Only have the videocard, cd-rom, and floppy installed.

is your tbird slot A or socket A?

The motherboard looks like a Slot A motherboard.

I'd check your standoffs--it's possible that you have a standoff in place that doesn't match up to a hole in the motherboard.

Old KX133 boards were known to be finicky with memory; a lot of people only got them to work by using high-quality memory from Mushkin or Corsair. Mushkin makes Athlon-tested memory specifically for this purpose.
