Default Combining two old processors?

I understand this is a difficult task, but I have two old computers, an HP Celeron 700MHz and a Compag PIII 933 MHz. I would like to build a single box using both processors, but I can't find any information on how to do go about doing this. This would be my first time building a computer(I know, I know, I should learn to crawl before I run a marathon), but I've got the time, and the desire to learn, so if anyone could point me to some good resources, I would really appreciate it.

i dont think thats possible, not without serious skillage.

the only way i know so far to get two physical processors on a board is to get a server board with 2 server processors like xeons

BTW does anyone else hate those ibm server adverts:

"what did you do with the servers" [looks behind and sees two servers with wheels hooked up to remote controls] ... madness

AMD 3000+
2gb RAM
X800 PCI-e
80gb + 250gb WD HDDs
X-FI Xtreme Music

Absolutely impossible, but if you do somehow figure out how to get two different CPU’s to work together, on once single board, then give me a call so I can make millions of dollars.

As far as I know, dual processors are like dual video cards, they both have to be the same to work together.
