I know of 2 places that make an adapter that goes the other way, letting you plug a Northwood in your old Willie board but I've never heard of 1 to go the other way. Tell your friend to dump the Willie while he's at it and buy a 1.8 Northie along with the new mobo. He can build little sis or bro a kids computer out the old mobo/cpu.
