the only thing I can see happening is this... If you have a slot 1 processor, then you'll need a slot one replacement. More than likely, it's a socket 370, but in the case of slot 1, you'll need to find a compatible CPU.
Download a program called CPU-Z and look on the first page of it. It should tell you in the little blank called "package" what slot it is.
