Ok so im about finished with this computer and it starts restarting randomly again, so i put in my gentoo cd and run memtest86 and it says that the ram is good the hard drive is good, and it couldn't be windows drivers b/c it restarted at the very end of the memtest so all i can figure is that that mobo has gone bad, so what i need to know...will a celeron work in a p4 board?

Your CPU is overheating. I know this from experience.

ThermalTake licks choads. A little AS5 fixed my problems :).

actually no it wasn't overheating, it was b/c there wasn't any thermal paste, but it was restarting randomly b/c of a bad mobo, trust me i know how to diagnose a computer. it works like a champ now.
