Question Upgrading Processor

Is it possible to upgrade my processor without messing up my computer of hard drive? I know it must be compatible with my mobo and everything so if anybody could help. THanks. I can give more information if needed.

that will work, but almost every p4 runs hot, not just prescott's. you just need to get a good hs+fan to cool it down.
