Set your FSB to 166MHz in BIOS.

The Athlon XP's FSB uses a DDR-technology, which means it can transfer two packets of data per clock-cycle.
So even tho it is only running at 166MHz physically, you get an effective 'clockspeed' of 333MHz.

If this confuses you, go here' ">http://forums.amd.com/index.ph...&view=findpost&p=86903
