I have a Intel Pentium 120Mhz with Intel Zappa motherboard running Windows95.

I plan to change to a Tyan motherboard using the same Pentium CPU and was wondering if there's a need to re-install Win95 since there'll be a change in motherboard and BIOS.

No you will not need to re-install Win95.  However you will need to force Win95 to read the new BIOS.  Normally Win95 only reads the BIOS when Setup is run.  However you can force it to read the BIOS.

Open the Device Manager
Remove everything under the "System" category.
Note:...You will be prompted a couple of times to re-start Win95.  Do not do so.  
Once you have everything removed in the category, then go ahead and re-start Win95.  Win95 will now be forced to read the new board's BIOS in order to install everything that it needs in the "System" category.
After it re-installs all of this you will be good to go.
