Default ASUS P4V8X-MX Socket 478 Motherboard

I am going to be buying this Asus Motherboard from Newegg and I went to the Asus website; ASUSTeK Computer Inc. and under the specifications for the CPU it says Socket 478 for Intel Pentium 4/ Celeron
Intel Hyper-Threading Technology ready
Supports Intel Prescott CPU..... I have the CPU from the old mobo and that is a Intel Celeron R 2.80GHz/128/400 CPU. Will this CPU work with this new mobo?? Thanks!

Ok... All the mobo connections and drives are set up. I went under Hardware Monitoring and it said the CPU temp was at 114 degrees F. Is that normal or not? Also, I set my boot order to CD Drive 1st and HD 2nd and I wanted to reinstall windows xp home edt. with the disc and it will flash with the _ Symbol and then the computer resets itself.
