You're right this is a tad off topic and I did forget my tip...
<tip type="replacing motherboard" author="Peter Kaulback">
If you are running windows 9x and you replace your motherboard you don't 
have to reinstall the OS.  Go into Safe Mode and wipe out the Device 
Manager in Control Panel completely, then reboot into Windows.  Everything 
new will be realized.  This has saved my work numerous times.
