[CentOS] Replacement for Intel SDS2 Motherboard

	We have recently had one of our office servers go south. The hardware 
was an Intel SDS2 motherboard (EATX), Dual Intel PIII 1.4GHz FC-PGA2-L2 
512KB, 3GB (6x512MB) 168 pin DIMM, SDRAM 133MHz/PC-133-ECC with 1x3Ware 
7006-2 and 2x3Ware 7506-4LP RAID controllers. The OS was RHEL3. 
Apparently, according to the beep codes, there has been an FRB failure.
	I've migrated most of the services 
(mail,web,proxy,samba,mysql,mailman,home directories) to an interim box 
running CentOS 5.2.
	At a minimum, I need to replace the motherboard and CPUS (I'm told they 
are unrecoverable). All the remaining hardware I plan to re-use, as well 
as moving from RHEL to CentOS.
	Does anyone have any recommendations on replacement motherboards with 
CentOS 5.2 in mind, along with the re-usable hardware requirements?
