Overclocking help

I have a Intel Pentium 3 running at 733mghtz, is there room for me to improve? If so i do have a new fan installed so i belive it can handle some more. However when i enter the BIOS im restricted from the prossecer speed to change it, along with memory and other things, basicly my question is, How do i get access to those options to over clock my system?

Any suggestions on how far i should take it, and any programs i can use to see if my new settings are stabile?

BTW im running Madrake 9.1 and a Nvidia GeForce2MX400 vidiocard, i have the latest version of nvclock but i dont know how to insall the package, please help with this too.
