    I seriously doubt it.
    If you want a mobo with an ISA slot, you could check on E-bay.

    You could try industrial/embeded pc producers. they make board with isa slots since customers may require backwards compatibility. Be warned there expensive.

    i think the mainstream mboards that had isa slots went out at about the time of the celeron 1.2 ghz cpu.

    i think...

    but why would you want isa slots on a mboard?

    I got a Chaintech CT-7AJA2 a couple of years ago, which has 1 ISA slot (for my old SCSI disk controller). It was one of the (very) few around at that time.

    Because I have an ISA dialup modem that has been very good to me. It has worked on every single operating system I have used and is a real modem, not some piece of **** WinModem.

    Whenever I want a new ISA slot box, I just check the curbs on trash pick-up day. But they're getting harder to find.

    But serial modems are pretty easy to find for just a few bucks. Of course serial ports are becoming rare, too...
