Please don't type all in Caps,  its difficult to read and it looks like you are shouting ;-)

Ok so you motherboard is never going to be fully compliant so your only option is to specify a different HAL when installing. When you see the message "Press F6 to install SCSI disk driver" , Press F7 instead. This will force an Non ACPI HAL  to be used - or you can press F5 and select a HAL from the list which is:

ACPI Multiprocessor PC
ACPI Uniprocessor PC
Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) PC
Compaq SystemPro Multiprocessor or 100% Compatible PC
MPS Uniprocessor PC
MPS Multiprocessor PC
Standard PC
Standard PC with C-Step i486
Other

Try "standard PC" is all else fails

Noting to lose - if that does not work then I guess you'll just have to forget putting XP on this machine

The first parameter 0x02 suggests a problem with a PCI device in the machine. Do you have any pci cards installed. If so remove them and add them after the installation of XP.

This is an excerpt from this MS knowledge base article http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=256841&sd=RMVP
(0x00000002, Parameter2, Parameter3, Parameter4):
This error is defined as ACPI root PCI resource failure. To discover what current resources are being used by PCI devices, it must be able to query the CRS descriptor in the ACPI namespace. This error occurs because the BIOS lacks a pointer to the list, the list is empty, or contains errors/conflicts.
