Question about ASUS Motherboards
I reformated my drive and want to re-install windows XP
It does not apparently like my configuration
Yes, it's getting too much dust. I cleaned the RAM with hot wet toilet paper, dry it, put it back, reboot!

The two most common causes for 1 long, 2 short beeps are video and RAM problems. From your post, I'm assuming there is no display on the screen.
(with your computer off) try re-seating your memory (take it out of the slot and re-place it) and reseat your video card as well. If you don't have any luck with that, try taking out all of the RAM sticks except for one...boot and see if it works properly...power off again and put in 1 stick at a time and repeat the process. If you have a bad stick, you can figure out which one has gone bad without having testing equipment in this way.
If your computer was running fine before you reformatted, it's unlikely to be a problem with the motherboard, but with the scenario you've given, it's not likely. If this doesn't work for you, please feel free to comment and expand on the history of the PC.

Note: The Microsoft Windows XP CD is a bootable CD and in many cases you should not need a bootable floppy diskette. Booting from the Windows XP CD will allow you to not only install/re-install Windows XP but will also allow you to troubleshoot it.
Create MS-DOS bootable diskette
When formatting a floppy diskette, users have the option of creating a MS-DOS startup disk, follow the below steps to do this.
1. Place diskette in the computer.
2. Open My Computer, right-click the A: drive and click Format.
3. In the Format window, check Create an MS-DOS startup disk.
4. Click Start
Create Windows XP Setup diskettes
Microsoft is beginning to phase out bootable floppy diskettes in favor of bootable CD discs and has not included a method of easily creating a bootable floppy diskette in Windows XP or from the CD. However, Microsoft has downloads available for users who still need to create bootable diskettes to install (not upgrade) Windows XP. These downloads can be found through KB310994.
