You don't send HD to an SD tv.  You send compressed HD from the
backend to the frontend, which then decompresses and scales the video
into a SD signal.

How have you connected your TV to your video card?  If you're using an
S-video output or something like this, I would think this should all
be handled automatically.

If you're using component out or something like that, you might have
to configure your video card specifically for NTSC/PAL/SECAM output
depending on your TV, but it definitely should work.  A 2.4GHz P4
should be able to do this, I would expect.
