Is there a problem booting to hard drive when changing form nVidia IGP-128 chipset to newer nVidia chipset?

My ASUS A7N266-E motherboard died. It has an nVidia IGP-128 Southbridge and a  MCP-D Northbridge. I am running Windows 2000. If I get a new motherboard that has a newer nVidia chipset, i.e. nForce2, nForce2-400, etc., will I be able to boot to my existing hard drive with no problems as long as I install the new chipset drivers? I am assuming here that I need to stay with the same chipset manufacturer for better compatibility.

As long as the motherboards are similar, Windows 2000 should allow you to boot with the new motherboard and install the newer drivers.
