Make and model of the motherboard would be helpful, but it looks like you should be able to use any XP processor, except the "Barton" stepping. They come at speeds up to 2400+.

Here's your motherboard:

It's very unusual in that it came bundled with a pre-installed Duron CPU. It depends on the BIOS, but the board should support any Palomino or Thoroughbred stepping, up to 2400+.
