If you have a 400/533MHz front side bus motherboard, can you add a 800MHz processor to it?

By 800MHz, I assume you mean a processor with a FSB of 800?
If so, then no you can't. Your motherboard can only support cpu's with an fsb of 400 or 533MHz

The cpu in your link is a 800FSB chip, so you would need a 800FSB board. Check the link below - I'm not suggesting that this is a particulary great motherboard but it is an example of one that supports 800FSB :
