Default Processor Question

Hello -

I have a Pentium III, and my question to you is, i want to upgrade my processor really soon, but without having to rip out my whole motherboard...I'm looking for something with similar compatabilities. Now how would I know if a processor is compatable with my computer?

well u will probably have to stick with another p3 since I think that p4's are only s478 and lga 775. If u want anything new u will have to go with a new mobo and probably new ram too.
