Could you use a pull or replacement mobo ? I notice there are some 
Alphastation mobos on ebay for @50 bucks if you are interested and not 
averse to fleabay :-) There isn't as much specifically for the 200, but I 
see them come and go all the time.

Also, I still deal with a lot of business clients running alphas and 
Tru64. There is a guy in Thornton, Colorado who I get quite a few dead, 
spare, and orphaned alphas from. It's an electronics supply type business. 
I'll see him this weekend and I can ask him if he's got any spares or dead 
mobos he could fork over.
