just bought a shuttle st62k, so i'm soliciting recommendations for
which processor (socket 478 p4 400/533/800mhz fsb) and memory (dual
channel ddr 200/266/333/400 * 2) combo would work best.

specs here: http://www.shuttle.com/hq/product/ba...on.asp?B_id=29

review here: http://www.sfftech.com/printdocs.cfm?aid=482

i'm not too interested in overclocking, etc. -- not a gamer -- just
want to use this for home office & digital media stuff.

i understand a prescott would be too hot
(http://www.sfftech.com/printdocs.cfm?aid=494), but, beyond that i
really haven't got a clue. also, in regard to memory, i think there
might be an issue with modules not fitting or something. any advice?

Go for the Nortwood, as it also gives better performance. I don't
think the Prescott is on the Zen supportlist -- I think it was before
the Prescott was officialy annonced, but it was removed.

As for memory I think I used Crucial XMS3200-modules for my review,
but ain't 100% sure. I think I had some issues when using PC3200
TwinMOS-modules.

If you take advantage of Dual Channel DDR-configuration the
videocontroller in the chipset will give better performance. If 3D
ain't important at all, there ain't much difference between using one
or two modules.

The 9100IGP-chipset work with two different modules in dual
channel-mode, but it's not recommended as it can give
stability-issues.
