Yes, it is  old. It uses the nForce3 chipset which will be impossible to use on Vista or 7 with AGP hardware acceleration.
Unless you can find someone to reverse engineer the drivers for you,
Very difficult to really understand your post without comma's and paragraphs in,read it yourself,
If you google you will find lots of peps with this problem, and maybe find a patch to help,
Merry Xmas
