Reusing old CPU on ASUS A8N-VM Motherboard

I have an ASUS A8N-VM Motherboard that I want to install on a new computer with an old
an old AMD Athlon XP 2800+. I also bought an AMD 3000+ Socket 939. So I have a few questions.

Can I use the 2800+ instead and return the 3000+? Can I buy a socket 939 adapter if I need it for the 2800+. is the 2800+ an AMD64 also? If I reuse the 2800+ how would I wipe off the old thermal paste to apply the new one? Would the Vantec thermal paste I have left over work fine? Are there any guides on installing old CPUs I can use as a reference?

Thanks

Hi,

The adapter is out of the question, so that answers most of your questions. Sell your 2800+ on Ebay and then get this socket 939 going.
