Default Overclock help

OK I feel brave enough to OC my CPU, but when i went to change the speed, it warned me about changing FSB Jumpers on main board to correspond with chipset. What are these jumpers and what do i do?

1gb DDR Ram (PC2700)
80gb SGB Hard Drive(OS)
40gb Maxtor Hard Drive

Uh...read your manual for your motherboard. We can't tell you.

New motherboards typically don't have any jumpers for FSB manipulations. However, in either case, manipulating the jumpers may turn on or off key components on your motherboard related to the control of the FSB. On my motherboard, there are no jumpers, but there is a BIOS setting to turn on the mobo's active overclocking chip. If that chip is on, I can't manually overclock anything. Some boards have a jumper for this instead of a BIOS setting...though it's rare.

You'll just have to read your mobo manual and find out. Best suggestion I can make, besides writing an email to the mobo makers themselves.
