Definitely not possible - the pin-outs are different, the voltages are different, the signaling methods are different, they are intended to support two different CPU microarchitectures.

No chance whatsoever. You don't have a Celeron or P3 somewhere? What about the comp you're posting from?

I think you'd end up with one crispy Pentium, if you tried. ;)

Actually, it probably wouldn't hurt the Pentium. Unless you physically damaged it by forcing it into a slocket or something, the default voltage for a Pentium is high enough you'd probably get by fine.

However, you'd have to custom solder a Socket 7 socket onto a PPGA slocket, it's be a friggin' mess.

Those arent' even close to pin-compatable. No way it would work

Not pin compatible.....good luck finding a slotket that fits a Pentium...

Bus is completely different....the Pentium bus is very different to the P6 GTL+ bus.

You got L2 cache? No L2 cache in that system....;)

Voltage? Pentiums want 3.2 volts....the highest power wanted by a Pentium II is 2.8 volts...
