I haven't heard of a Celeron R processor, are you sure it isn't just a standard Celeron with the Registered symbol after it? ®
How do you know it's a Celeron R (or ®)? What socket type is the processor?

If the FSB is the same and its a socket 775 then it should work but then again I tried looking up the processor and all I came up with was what troy has mentioned Celeron ® not Celeron R.
I usually install the DVD and hard drives first, but I don't connect the power and data cables until the very last thing, otherwise they get in the way. For the case cables, there should be a motherboard manual with very specific instructions and diagrams for this. This is the only part about building a computer that I don't like
1) should I connect my DVD & HDDs before I fasten my mobo or vice versa?...Personally, I'd like as much room as possible to maneuver. The biggest challenges will be figuring out where the LED wires connect on the Mobo...
I'm pretty sure your larger one is called a parallel connection, so then you would need to look at something like a parallel-to-serial cable adaptor. Is this what you're looking for?
2) I have an ancient HP printer that works great...My new mobo doesnt have that "big" printer input connection...It is a smaller connection called "serial"...do I have to go buy a conversion cable or do I have to get a new USB printer?

If there is no power, no nothing at all, then you can't go looking at other components. I would double check (again) that there is:
1) Power from the wall outlet (test a light in it or something)
2) Power cable properly connected to the case (pull it out and put it back in again, firmly)
3) Some PSU devices have a switch, make sure it's in the I (on) position
If this is all good to go then I would look to RA the PSU back to Newegg. It was the OCZ PSU that I recommended?
Before I RMA'd the PSU, I would disconnect all of the components except for the motherboard, processor, 1 stick of RAM, and the speaker. Then see if you get any lights or beeps. Also check your jumper setting.
Also, make sure all of the provided standoffs are in place and that your mobo isn't shorting out. As a last resort, pull the parts I referred to out of your case and put them all on a piece of cardboard (a pizza box works great) and see if you can get power.
