I've inherited an old computer from work and wish to upgrade the same to make it a tad more modern.  It currently houses a Microstar MS6119 VER:1.1 BX2 motherboard with Pentium 2 processor.  I would be really grateful if someone could give me some advice on this as I haven't got a betty boo of what I'm doing to be quite honest.  Can this board be upgraded to a P3 or P4, if so what do I do and what do I need to spend some dollars on in order to upgrade.

Maybe I should think of an alternative hobby, I don't know, but I can't afford a computer ordinarily so need to give it my best shot.

Shelly:

Try doing a search here:

It's admirable that you want to learn to build a computer on your own. Just remember to be careful and try to do a lot of reading first. Once you are certain you know what you're doing, then try things like changing the CPU. (On an old motherboard, a wrong voltage could destroy a CPU.)  Many newer motherboards are more forgiving.

That being said, enjoy the hobby. I did until it became my livelihood.
