Say, I have an M912-P Intel motherboard that I run my 486DX4 100mHz
with.  Yes, I use both 30 and 72 pin SIMM ram, the cache is only the
typical 8 kb 486 variety on the chip itself, along with 256 kb on
the board...never have a problem!  I found a "manual" for this MB
in HTML format, if you like, I could send a copy to you, it has all
the various jumper settings you need worry with.

As for a VCD player for Win3X, I'm not familiar with any, only
with audio CD players for Win3X and later.

Good luck,
