If you install this on an XP machine, XP will most likely have a driver for it, and / or the graphics card will know what to do with it, (unless you haven't managed to find a graphics card as well yet :tazz: )

As for the connectors, they should be standard, both for the connection to the PC and to the wall socket

You can deal with sub system errors on XP here
