Yes but you'll be forced to run at the speed of the slowest CPU.  Also, there are possibly incompatibilities is the two CPUs are of different mask revisions or Rev. Levels.

In your question, however, it's not possible to run a Celeron with a P3. They are not compatible.  Two Celerons or two P3s are OK.
