Question cpu fsb vs ram fsb

just want to know more abt overclocking, but quite puzzled abt some terms

an article says that before overclocking it is better to lower the RAM frequency, question is: how to?

then i read another article saying that"our CPU freq at the default 1066MHz FSB is 266MHz. Your DDR2-800 RAM runs at 400MHz by default. Your current CPURAM ratio is 266:400...in other words, 2:3."
what does this mean?

if it means to lower the ram as low as possible and still want to 1:1 ratio how could that be?
