The max you can put into your motherboard would be a 3.06 CPU with 533 FSB.

Here is the supported CPU's your motherboard can handle, the website also has info about the CPU's as well: http://www.cpu-upgrade.com/mb-ASRock/M266A.html

A system that old
Its time to get a new system
S478 cpus are hard to come by new, and the ones at 3.06GHz are probably quite expensive
i doubt it would be a match for even the entry level CPUs of today (say the Intel Pentium Dual Core E5200)

If you already have a new system
I'd leave that old one alone

before you upgrade your system try to check the manual of your motherboard to check what processors are compatible on it.
