Hello guys ,
I want to ask that is there any dual core available in market that can fit in a P4 mobo socket or is every dual core of different dimensions tan any p4 chips ?
If the answer is yes, would there be any frequency conflict(s) ? I really have no idea about these..........Please help.

What exactly is the socket name of your motherboard or just give me a motherboard model and I will look it up.

Depends on the socket, it can be a 432 , 478 or a 775, if it is a 478 or 432 than there are no dual core processors for that socket, the first dual core processors were made for socket 775. If it is a 775 than you can find dual-core processors for that socket easily with google.

Nope. No dual cores were made for socket 478.

Even if you had 775, you'd still need to have proper chipset support.

If you are still looking for confirmation, then +1 to the previous posters. Can't go dual core for that socket.
