If its a Pentium II, you might have to Drill new holes. (Heatsync to Fan)
Take it in to a shop and have them do it.
Standard Pentiums are glued with a heat resistant Apoxy.
If you pull it off, you'll prbably pull some chip with it.

That was the second part. Socket 7. A heat resistant Apoxy is used to hold the sync on to the chip. If you pry it off, you risk serious dammage to the chip.

Not sinks all use heat resistant apoxy resin, some are simply stuck on with a patch containing heat conductive glue. You can tell by the fact the patch is square and usually yellow / white. If this is the case you should be able to pull it off (carefully).  Otherwise im afraid esr0k is correct, you do risk damaging the chip.

I've done this sucessfully:
With the chip installed in a socket, grip the heatsink and twist it.  Just rotate it as if trying to unscrew a jar lid.
Mine came off without damaging anything.
Good luck,
Ralph

ashleya,
What do you want to do with this question?
Since you've solved the problem yourself, you might want to go to Customer Service on the home page and have it removed.

ashleya,

thanks for the tip next time that  I need to remove a boxed heat sink I will remember to stop at the local hardware store and pick up a Stanley night and a sharp new Hacksaw blade.

IF YOU SLOWLY AND GENTLY SLIDE IT TO ONE SIDE AND THEN THE OTHER YOU CAN REMOVE. PROVIDING THAT IT DOES HAVE HEAT SINK GLUE ON IT. BE SUE NOT TO GET ANY OF THE GLUE ON TO YOUR HANDS.
