What socket is it? Use CPU-Z to find out. CPU-Z

Well, with a 2.4GHz P4 it's probably socket 478... Socket 775 is like 3GHz and up I think.

He said "celaron 4 processor" which makes no sense...

well I guess it doesn't take too much logic to figure out that it's a celeron, at least I thought it was quite obvious..

Anyway, find out which mobo you have (cpu-z will tell you this too) and then check if the mobo supports pentium 4 processors. Most likely it will, but it's best to make sure.

And yes, as long as you use a mobo that accepts ddr then you can use it.
