Windows, it looks liek ...

that's a nforce2 Ultra 400 Chipset

go to

Select Support
Select Driver Download
Select Socket A
Select nForce 2-SPP
Select nf7-s v2.0

You should end up on this page...

or....You could grab the latest unified driver from nVidia

Alternately you could load Linux on it and use the following
