    I've done lots of bios tweaking suggested by Paul's FAQ, windows still
    says unknown, and no SSE in dxdiag, maybe I need to re-insatll again,
    but I nothing I changed mentioned SSE.
    If it is a BIOS problem then is there a way in Linux to check if the
    SSE stuff is enabled, it's listed in the CPU Flags, but I don't know
    if that means its using it.

    And it will always say unknown. There's no name match for the speed it's
    running in the bios. This is only cosmetic and is no concern.
    To be honest, I don't know if the Linux kernel uses SSE or not. And it
    really doesn't matter. Any SSE capable app should use it as long as the
    programmer correctly identifies that SSE is available. And as you see, the
    flag is there using cat /proc/cpuinfo.

    Have you updated windowsxp? I know it has a couple CPU updates, and the
    Athlon XP is one of them.
