well you may have put the gasket back on wrong blocking the oil hole which supplies the oil to the head, this would cause the low oil pressure and the oil light coming on.
If the gasket is on the wrong way it may be causing the overheating problem as well by blocking or partially blocking the water holes in the head that allow the water to get to the head and cool it down.
these are the only things I can think of apart from maybe a cracked block caused by the overheating but that would not explain the lack of oil to the rockers
Hope this helps

SOURCE: engine oil leak
It's very possible that the gaskets weren't installed correctly. Unlinke other cars I've owned, my 99 A4's valve cover gaskets are actually somewhat longer than they need to be (about an inch or so), and you have to be very careful when installing them that they don't get pinched outside the "channel" that they're supposed to sit in. I'd be willing to bet that the installer bumped the gasket when replacing the valve cover and knocked it out just enough that it's allowing oil to leak past the gasket. I'd pull the valve covers again and verify that they're seated correctly. I would bet they aren't - there's really nowhere else on the 2.8 for the oil to leak where it could hit the manifold.
