Default OCing a 2000+

im trying to OC my XP 2000+.
I have raised the fsb, and i have toyed with the RAM settings as well. However, everytime it either freezes, reboots or gives me a blue screen.

One of my friends says i have some version of Tbird that can't overclock, and that the 2300 should OC fine, as it is the next version. Any suggestiongs?

PS, my vid card is OCing fine, im jsut about to add a sliced up pentium heatsink to the ram and i screwed the old pentium one fan to the heatsink of the GPU.

i have raised it by as little as one mhz, and still instable, completely and uterly; it crashes when i just run some sis cpu benchmarks. Voltage shouldn't matter with such a small change in fsb, never the less i raised it to the next level to no avail. As i said i tried changing ram stuff too without sucess. Im stumped, im thinking maybe my friend was right and this thing just won't oc, i just will have to buy a 2500 at some point i guess. Thanks for the suggestions guys.
