Your Motherboard is new enough that it should be 48 bit LBA compliant. That means support for drives larger than 127GB. The drive itself appears to have a SATA I jumper which may be needed because your SATA contoller/s are SATA I and the drive is SATA II.

You will also need to have at least service pack one integrated into your WinXP CD if you plan on installing it on that drive using one large partition.

I suggest you use the Western Digitial software to prep the drive prior to installing Windows. Create multiple partitions with the first one for Windows about 20GB. A second partition for your programs and a third or more for other stuff.
