Default Socket A cooler on Socket 939?

I am going to upgrade my Athlon XP 1800+ to a Athlon 64 3200+ and want
to know if the cooler I have - a Coolermaster Aero 7+ - will fit on
the new socket or will I need a new CPU cooler?

I havent compared them side by side in detail and who knows manybe
someone makes a dualie - one made to fit both but my immediate
impression when I worked on a neighbors and got mine was they are very
different.-- the mountings and size seem different.

Thanks guys, I didn't think it would work but I hate getting rid of
anything. The plan now is to whack my old CPU and RAM into a
barebones case, along one of my old hard drives, and run Linux on it.
