It should take the RAM chips at 133. Like you suspected, it'll just run them at 100. Sorry, I'm not on XP yet. Can't tell you anything about drive naming in XP. If XP still suppoorts DOS, just relabel it in DOS using the LABEL command. (LABEL D:DVD [where D: is your DVD drive[)

PC133 is 100% compatable with PC100 memory and a PC100 MB, it just wont run at the full 133 Mhz. BKVic

I wouldn't worry how XP labels it , it will recognize it as a DVD drive once you put a DVD in it , a for a DVD decoder try http://www.7thzone.com they have lots of links for DVD stuff

Ummm... PC133 is nothing more than higher quality PC100 RAM... It will work fine... As for the DVD, I am not sure... I found XP to be a pain with certain componants, and I just went back to Win2K... Win2K was faster and more stable... Doesn't have all that hokie shit in it either... As for a software decoder, I use PowerDVD that came with my 12X DVD drive... As long as youi have a decent machine, you don't need a DVD decoder card anymore. Unless you need a digital video out for a TV that is...

You will never have a problem running the faster PC133 in a PC100 system. All you are doing is running the RAM slower than it is capable of. You can however have issues with running the PC100 at PC133 speed. Although I have had some really high quality PC100 that ran fine at PC133...
