Default Dell motherboard upgrade dilemma!!

Hi all! Here's the problem. I have a Dell Dimension V400 Pentium 2, which I would like to upgrade to a Pentium 3 850MHz or close to it. This requires swapping out the motherboard (Which I just bought on E-bay), to accomodate the new processor. Problem is, instead of the standard screws securing the motherboard to the chassis, my Dell has some pin-type connectors, which appear to be soldered directly to the case. Any help on how to get the damn thing out of the case would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks in advance.
