You also have to replace the motherboard! :) The P1 and P2 are totally different chips, and they are not pin compatible. The P2 was usually a slot mounted affair, at least the ones I've used are.

P1's were all Socket 7 processors and PII's were generally Slot 1

Different motherboards entirely...just upgrade the board to an Athlon CPU and board....as cheap as they are you might as well.
