You are correct Socket 370 is not compatible with Socket 370 because the pin
configuration is different
That is ... IT WON"T FIT :)

Well From my own personal experience ......
I think you are better off using a Socket 370 Board with a Socket 370 CPU when
I have come to my own conclusions and also read several articles regarding this
and I believe there may be some signal loss when using a S370 -->>>Slot one
 With a board such as the ABIT BP6 there seems to be plenty of room for the
Cooling fans and heat does not seem too much of an issue.
Here is one such interesting article.
