Which one is better or faster? :)

AMD Athlon 2800+ or Intel Celeron 2.40 Ghz

I assume the Intel one is at 2.4 compared to AMD's 2.08

but I don't know too much about AMD processors.

Actually, according to the CPU charts I just did, the AMD processor seems to be faster. Am I reading this correctly?

Yes, you are reading that correctly - the AMD is indeed faster than the celeron.
An Athlon 2800+ has a PR rating (performace rating) of 2.8GHz, not 2.08GHz. Also, bear in mind that Celerons are slower than their Pentium equivalents, i.e. a Celeron 2.4GHz will be slower than a P4 2.4GHz for example.
