Default how do I configure a skt A XP athlon 3100 into Abit AT7 max2?

I have installed the latest bios onto the abit at7 max2 board.
Mem is pc 3200 (DDR) and the board will recog /run 400fsb.
In the soft cpu setup I go to user define then enter 200 fsb,
then x11 mutiplyer which will give me 2200hz ( ie real speed of xp3200)
However the fsb:agp:pci setting choices are 3:2:1 or 4:2:1 or 5:2:1.
Do I not need different settings here?
It nearly boots with the 5:2:1 setting and stops at the mem check.
Can anyone help me please?

it seems you have no choice but to overclock the AGP and PCI buses with the ratios available. AGP bus should be 66MHz and PCI 33MHz. is there an auto setting? see if there are any jumper settings that effect the available ratios.
