Default XP on Thinkpad T23

Hi,

I have an IBM T23 Laptop from a couple of years ago. It currently has 2000 Professional installed on it. However, when it was shipped it came with XP and it was designed for Windows XP Professional.
The problem that I have is; When I install XP on it, the scrolling on pages is seriously jerky and laggy which is really annoying. So I eventually settled for 2000 which does not have this problem. The thing is - they are both running 32 bit, so I can't see why this happens in XP.
If anyone could offer any advice on how to fix this I would be most grateful.

-Ryan

Disable the smooth scroll in XP and make sure you have the drivers installed and a good resolution

Yeah, I tried those. Do you think it's a hardware or software issue? Because when I got the laptop it worked fine, but over time, and after a XP reinstall it got much much worse.
