What motherboard so you have? It may not be able to run the 2.4Ghz CPU.

ok so google turned up the 1.7 ghz p4 as 400mhz FSB

There are 4 options for the 2.4ghz

400mhz FSB with 512kb Cache
533mhz FSB with 512kb Cache
533mhz FSB with 1MB Cache
800mhz FSB with 512kb Cache with HT

If you can get can get more info on the MB we might be able to narrow it down a bit more as to what cpu will work for that motherbaord
