If the motherboard doesn't have a PCI slot that meets the requirements listed on the box, I'd say don't try it, chances are it won't work.
Several companies make very good motherboards, the ones that use SIMMs are getting harder to find. some of the better ones:
Asus, Epox, Tyan, Gigabyte, Soyo, DTK, Micro Star...CSO and Pricewatch usually both have older moptherboards listed, and the best prices you're likely to find.
Watch out for the Intel 430 series chipset, most will only cache 64MB RAM, except for the 430HX, and you have to add tag RAM to allow it to cache more than 64. Otherwise, it's a good chipset, I have a 430FX, it works fine, no complaints, except the memory limitation..
If you had everything...Where would you put it?
