I'm pretty sure you can't - I can almost guarantee you that those are different sockets.

Sorry, It's simply not possible. As cji said, the sockets the CPUs fit in are not the same.

If you were going to a faster PIII-M or if you had a P4-M mobile board already, then sure. But there is no way you're going to be able to upgrade a PIII-M to a P4-M. There was a time when Intel had both the CPU and northbridge in a single package which made more upgrades possible... but I believe that stopped after the PII-M.

Not possible P3 and P4 have different sockets.
