yes, there are a dozen athlonXP capable motherboards made by Asus alone...
The a7n8x Deluxe is the newest/best incarnation from Asus. While this motherboard may be more expensive than most (~$145 from newegg.com) it is probably the best.
also, I would get an AthlonXP 2200+, the price difference between the chips from 2000-2200 is so small it doesn't make sense not to get the 2200+ unless you're just on the strictess of budgets.
