You need to tell us if the current board is a socket 478 and wether the CPU is a Celeron of Prescott, Northwood core and its frontside bus speed (400, 533 or 800Mhz).

put simply a 478 pin pentium will not fit in a 775 skt mobo, if you want a new mobo without changing the processor then you have to get a socket 478 board.
There is more involved which is why we need to know the core etc..
