The bios may not have your xp2200 in it's database as it was the first release. So that's probably why it's "unknown". But as long as it it's running at 13x133 you're good to go.
There's absolutely no reason to go through the sometimes risky business of updating a bios just for a cosmetic glich. You know which jumper is for the Bios Protection so best to leave it at "Write Protect". If you ever need to update the bios you'll have to reset that first. But as long as the system runs stable, it's not necessary.
And if the system does play up there may be a hardware problem to solve before we start messsing with the bios.
