    With that XP2600+ being a 133MHz (266DDR) FSB unit its multiplier will be unlockable by the nForce2 chipset so by lowering the multiplier you should be able to run with a 200MHz (400DDR) FSB but PC3200 memory will be required to run at that speed properly (eg; 10x200MHz though you maybe able to run a higher multiplier).

    That memory should be fine but CAS2 memory will give you slightly better performance. As to the copper shim be sure that its meant for that CPU (there are several different versions) and doesn't cover any of the bridges on the CPU body as it will short the CPU out if it does but it won't hurt to use it if you're worried about chipping/cracking the core.
