I am instaling a new mobo later today on this PC. I know I will have to reinstal XP, but is my information on my hard drive going to be lost? Or is there a way to do it so it will still be there? Also will I have to reinstall drivers again for my vid card and other items?

When you reinstall XP, everything on your hard drive will be formatted or erased. So backup all your data before you reinstall windows. Yes, you will have to reinstall any drivers and programs.
