Default New processor

Can anyone tell me if a Pentium 4 PPGA 478 pin processor is compatible with a mPGA478 socket? Thanks in advance.

according to intel's website, that is a mobile processor, which will not fit in a desktop motherboard (don't quote me on that, that is only a guess on my part, maybe someone who know mobile processors better than me caould tell you)

Desktop specs:
AMD Athlon XP 2500+@ 200x11 - EPoX 8rda3I - Thermaltake 420watt silent PSU - 2x512MB PNY PC3200(DualChannel) - TT HSF - PNY 5900SE, 128MB DDR, 256-bit - - Toshiba SD-R5002: DVD-RW - NEC DVD-RW - 2 Antec 80mm fans - 1 Delta 92mm fan - 1 Antec 120mm fan- 1 TT 120mm fan - Windows XP Pro - WD special edition 80GB 7200 RPM- Seagate 80GB 7200 RPM 8MB cache - Onboard Sound - Onboard Ethernet

Notebook specs:
ACER Travel Mmate 4000LCi - Intel Pentium M 710 - 15\" XGA TFT - 512MB DDR333 - 40 GB HD - DVD-rom/CD-RW Drive - WLAN 802.11b/g - Winxp Home - Intel Extreme Graphics - Average Battery Life: 4-5 hours - 6.4 lbs

Ok thanks Soloman02,
Im currently running an eMachines 1.8GHz Celeron with an Imperial 1.03 TriGem Computer, Inc. (WMT478/NWD) mobo with PhoenixBIOS 4.0 Release 6.0. Does anyone know if this motherboard would be able to take a Pentium 4 processor, 2.4GHz-2.8GHz?
