RE: Is it possible to switch these processors?

How do I find out if the processors are socket 7 or slot 1?
I assumed they were both socket 7; so my question now is, is there something
on the processor that would indicate the socket type? Additionally where do
i go on the net to find out info on motherboards, monitors, etc., if the OEM
is no longer in business or around.

thanks for all the help,

Most likely, is the fact the p100 is a socket 7 processor, and the p450 is
a slot1 processor.

Totally different connectors, different motherboards, different ram
types, etc etc.

Not going to happen.
