I think what you may have done is not installed corrctly, appologies if I'm incorrect in this. What you need to do is install your Operating System then install the motherboard drivers then install any other things such as graphics card drivers then antivirus then your internet connection. The motherboard drivers must be installed immediatly after windows if you don't do it this way some of the items do not work. Your motherboard drivers are here if you don't have them click here but this computer may have severe problems running XP, there are no XP drivers that I can see listed plus in terms of speed 233mhz, its very slow for expecting XP to run on it particularly since you say its XP Pro. If there are no XP motherboard drivers that maybe why you can't get the ports to work. To be perfectly honest you'd be better trying to install something like Win 98 on it if you have the disks.
