Generally the heatsink and fan mount to the cpu with the back cover on and 4 pins or screws go thru from the front or back depending on the heatsink.
If you need to know how to remove the stock heatsink and fan check this link.

Check out "Removing the Cover from a PIII" in CPU section of Tips and Techniques from the front. You'll want to have a HSF specific to the Slot 1 CPU, too. There are still a lot of quality HSFs aroundfor Slot 1
