    dunno if the board will support it...

    the voltage requirements and heatsink clips may not be adequate on the compaq board...

    I had almost the same system before.. and I just decided to upgrade instead of build on what I had before...

    I don't think the motherboard will provide enough to support that CPU.

    is there any harm to the motherboard if it does not work?

    I don't think it's a good idea to try.

    There should be a sticker on the back saying what kind of model it is, or on the papers that came with it, something of the matter.

    uhh... don't get me wrong, but the k6-2 isn't socket A!? right??

    not to mention he only has a 100mhz bus. and i seriously doubt compaq released an kind of bios update (for a system that old, at least) that would let the mobo recognize the new athlon xp cores.. or any athlons for that matter.

    that's even if they physically fit, which i really doubt as well.

    dude, look into getting a mobo.
