i got a Tiny P3 500mhz & as far as i can find out it has a MS6156-bx7 mobo.
MSI spec for this mobo says it is a slot1 but can this be replaced with as slot370 processor? or would a new mobo be needed for this.

New mobo needed. I think? The slot or socket type on the mOBO has to correspond to that of the processor

i thought i saw somewhere that u can get adapters. is this correct?

I think this may be possible but i can't say i've seen many advertised in the magazines

Yes I believe you can, but from what I remember, the cost of the adaptor and new CPU is not viable unless you have no other choice.

Much better as Elrond says, New M/Board and CPU.
