Question Linux Overclocking Program?


Hi. I'm trying to find a CPU overclocking program for linux, basically a software program that can change the FSB speeds. I want to do this since my BIOS dosnt have the usual settings to change them . I am experienced with OC'ing, so please to warn me, thanks. I am welcome to other suggestions in order to overclock an old slow machine i have. Thanks

cpufreqd is only for underclocking to save power and such..not overclocking!

I once used customized cpufreq tables to increase the maximum frequency and it seemingly worked (I have no way to ascertain if it was actually running overclocked, but it said it was. it could also scale back down to normal frequencies during low usage/excessive idleness).
