He is using a diiffrent CPU but the concept is the same.
One thing you will want to get is the CPU-Z @ www.cpuid.com to find out what the stepping on your CPU is. Prob see a 0 or A stepping or 1 or B stepping and the B is a better OCer.

It really depends on the mobo weather you have to change something in the mobo itself (jumper) or go in the bios and adjust the settings. Go over your motherboard's manual and find out if the FSB needs to be set by jumpers or the bios. The former needs to be changed in the mobo, by hand, while the latter is changed through the bios.

Post your system specs (include brand/model of components) so that we're able to provide you with more specific help.

BTW: You can definitely overclock without damaging your CPU... That's what we all do around here (well most of us
).

Do i need to change anythin in the motherboard or just via bios?

Thats about all i know :s

I took a look at the manual for your mobo and the FSB is to be set by jumpers. The one jumper right on top of your AGP slot.

Unfortunately, the higher supported FSB on this mobo is 266 and that's what the XP2000 runs, so it cannot be overclocked at all....
not an overclocking mobo...
