try www.newegg.com for a place to get mobo and chips. I do not think that I can help you with your other problem though.

why are you not formatting with the windows setup CD or within windows instead ? you may be using an older version of DOS. you can download the winME startup floppy from bootdisk.com and use it to format with FAT32. you are not short on system memory that is for certain. next time please do not double post, we do not appreciate that.
