Two Processors in One Computer?

My parents are buying a new computer and are dumping their old one.  I was wondering if I could use their old 200 mHz MMX processor.  I know I heard that you can have more than one processor, but are their any technical things I need to know about?  I have a 466 mHz Celeron.

The short answer is NO.

Dual processor systems have two processors that are the same. Your Classic pentium chip and the Celeron are two different animules in this world.

You need a dual processor motherboard to use 2 processors. I have seen some ISA cards that support 2 processors but don't know anything about them. If you want to use dual without buying a new MB then that is the way you would have to go. (maybe someone knows how good these cards are??)

When I read the question again I can't figure out if you are wanting to buy a new processor for the old one or use your 466mhz.
Maybe you could clear this up.

Comp,

Sorry, I locked the question............... my thoughts were that he wanted to use the Pclassic and his existing Celeron.

Hawkeye,

Feel free to reject this premature answer if in fact you were headed somewhere else with your query.................. and excuse an old man, the wrinkles on the brain aren't as defined as they used to be.
