Like I said, be careful to remove ALL the old solder from the pads before soldering on the new CPU, and dunk it in vast amounts of liquid flux... If you need more solder on it, use solder paste applied with a syringe.
We're talking 1.27mm pitch here, that's seriously huge compared to other SMD components, so BGA really does have quite a bit of an advantage...
Good luck ;-)
oh, and this SHOULD be pin-compatible as well, and should withstand a bit of overclocking. It's also significantly faster than the 603 at the same speed: http://w2.pcsurplusonline.com/viewprod.cfm?ID=324
However, it's a 2V core (max 2.8) so might need something extra...
