    2.0 mhz? Man, that sucker must be painfully slow!:p

    Nah, increase the fsb by 1 until your computer won't boot, then graudally back off, benchmarking it to make sure it's stable (Toast, 3dMark2001, PCMark2002 are good tools)

    Friend of Bill What, me worry?

    If it's a 2.0 GHz you can start at 2.2 without a problem (provided you have decent RAM and mainboard) and gradually increase. When I overclocked my 2.0A I started at 115 FSB and increased by increments of 3 MHz until unstable then decreased by 1 MHz increments until stable. It's actually a preference thing when trying to reach your maximum stable speed.
