    Unless your new motherboard uses the same chipset as the old one,you may need to re-install XP.
    However it may be possible to recover your installation.
    Here's a couple of guides which explain the procedure.

    I would boot up and press f8 or del and go into the bios and change it to boot from cd rom and do like your reinstalling but do a repair and that should keep all your progs...it will default your boot upscreen and welcome screen if they have been customed
