uhm  ... be careful processors have a specific fsb that they are 
designed for. For early Celerons like yours that's 66 mhz.
And you could run into problems with your RAM if it only supports 66mhz.

I looked through your manual and I think you can't really go any higher 
without doing anything that could be considered overclocking *shrug*.
You could for example up your fsb to 75 mhz but your memory and 
everything else may not like it. Don't blame me if you blow up your 
computer. :D

I've found an interesting table that says that they don't even recommend 
running your cpu on that board. :) (probably just means that you won't 
get full speed out of it)
