Microsoft used to have list of motherboards/chipsets known to run Windows 2000 workstation, but looks like Google can only find their Windows 98 list now. Anyone know where Windows 2000 list is, or of any similar list to help me compare & pick board for custom build?

Locating a board that old will be nearly impossible.

But here is the full HCL for Win2K: ftp://ftp.microsoft.com/services/whql/hcl/win2000hcl.txt

edit to add this ,maybe not given the price of this one .

Support for Windows 2000 ended on July 13, 2010!

The Windows 2000 End-of-Support Solution Center is a starting point for planning your migration strategy from Windows 2000 to Windows 7, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008 R2.
