    1. Do the newer mobos like

    or
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813186037
    detect SATA hard drivers automatically or do I have to pop in a floppy and install the drivers?

    2. Would this
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813186037
    work for the AMD3000+ venice cored chip? also, does the mobo use the standard number of pins for the power plug or is it that 24 pin? (or do I have it all turned around?)

    3.and lastly, would this ram
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820141225
    work for my foxcon motherboard?

    Any board sporting the nf4 chipset ( like both your choices) will not need F6ed SATA drivers during install.
    Unless you are setting up a RAID array, then all bets are off.

    You will need a 24 pin ATX header on your PSU.
    AND SATA connectors AND PCIe connectors.

    The RAM you chose will NOT work...it is DDR2 and that's for Intels, not AMD platforms (yet). I like/recommend/use this Patriot ram .
    Excellent performance for the money (mine will run stable at DDR4000 speeds).

    Be more specific. What cables do you think you need?

    visit www.unattended.msfn.org and learn how to make a windows xp disk with all your drivers updates and settings on one disk, or for a quick solution http://www.nliteos.com/

    I have found that this is the easiest way to get around the problem of xp not detecting Sata drives. Once you slipstream the drivers windows will detect the drives and you can install your os to these drives. This works for raid as well.

    SATA connectors come with the motherboard. PCI-E power connectors may come with the PSU, depending what you get, they certainly don't come with the mobo.

    You haven't said which graphics card you are thinking of using, not all of them need PCI-E power connectors. You did realise those are all PCI-E boards? In other words, no AGP slot. Thought I'd better point that out just in case you were thinking of using your existing AGP card.

    That card will work and apparently does not require any special power connectors.

    SATA data cables should, but I was referring to the power connectors.

    Hrmm.. I read on one of the newegg comments that you don't need the adapter for the 20 to 24 pin and that you can just plug it in. Do I lose anything if I just plug it in without the adapter?
