The number refers to the amount of pins. In general- more pins, the better.

You must match the number of pins on the CPU to the amount of sockets on the motherboard.

Basically the interface between the CPU and motherboard.

Iraq... whee.

FadingTheory pretty much hit the nail on the head.

Socket A (462), Socket 754, Socket 939, and Socket 940 are AMD processors.

Socket 370, Socket 478, Socket 604 (Xeon), and LGA 775 are Intel processors.
