Default Opinions, Please...

Alright, I've got an Abit KT7A-RAID on the way right now along with an Athlon 1.2 GHz socket-A chip. What's the best heatsink/fan combo that I should be looking for? Basically want to keep it running as cool as possible, nothing major, minor OCing perhaps. Just looking for a good sink without it sounding like a jet engine under my desk.

Actually, now I'm also considering the Iwill 266 mainboard. So, same question for that board. Also, will the Iwill board's on-board sound interfere with a real sound card that I plan to put in?

i'd go with a FOP32-1, it has the best temps without that loud ass delta fan, and it's only like 20$ too. make sure to get the -1 model with the good clip

fop38, fop32-1, Volcano2,5,6. Anything that is big and fits your budget.
(it looks like that FOP32-1 has over hanging aluminum to it making it easier to tie a 3" fan on it)

Find a quiet slow RPM 3" big fan and resolder the wires so that fan is powered by the 5volt pin the molex connector (this will make it spin even slower). Mount the 3" fan on the heat sink with twist ties, string, fan adaptor mount the bigger slower fan on your HS. I'm guess that would be much quiter but a bit of work.

(I plan on doing the same myself on my 2nd scrap parts PC as a quiet movie dvd PC)

oh yah you can also do this. http://www.overclockers.com/tips635/
but if you put a bunch of foam inside your case. Make sure you have at least 1 fan blowing cold air into the PC.
(When I tried it I forgot and after 4mins my CPU shot up 20degrees celius. woops)
