New CPU Now no boot! HELP

Specs: Macintosh
Hi, I have a very old computer on my hands and I decided to get it up and running again. I have it working with a 633MHz Intel Celeron CPU with 256MB PC133 RAM. I also have the latest bios. I bought a 1GHz Intel Celeron because this table says it's compatible: And here is the item I bought:
I tried clearing the CMOS and putting the mobo on jumperfree mode. When I turn it on I get all the fans running and hard drive activity. Is there something more to try before I send it back?

Notice what is says at the bottom of the CPU upgrade page for models that are high-lited in that peachy color:

"This CPU may or may not be supported by the motherboard"

The model number from the eBay page is BX80530F1000256. Guess which model number is high-lited in that peachy color?
