throw the celeron back in (dont waste your time applying grease and all that jazz) and get the latest BIOS for your motherboard and flash it, it should give you P4 support if your motherboard has it.

Erm, it'll never work. Reason? You need Celerons and P4s that are 400MHZ FSB ONLY. Juice's CPU is 533FSB.

Why returning it? Just buy a used S478 board, and you'll be good to go.
