Try a repair install: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;292175.  Whenever you change a motherboard in WinXP or Win2K, the Hardware Abstraction Layer needs to be changed.

Bad news - if a repair install doesn't work, you will need to do a fresh install.  Hopefully, you've backed up all the data and can restore it.
