Not for the motherboard itself but the operating system may need drivers to be
able to use all the features of your new Radeon.

XP SP2 already had drivers for my Nvidia AGP card. It's possible that it may
also 'recognise' the Radeon. Try it first and see if XP auto-configures itself.
If not it'll operate in VGA (640x480) or SVGA (800x600) mode most likely until
you get the drivers.
