I just bought a new pc with an Intel Pentium II 350 Mhz.
In the BIOS (AMI), I have to option to select the CPU speed (e.g. 3 * 100 Mhz, etc...).
If I want to "overclock" the CPU, is this the way to do it ?
What are the risks if I do overclock my CPU ?

PII 350 is one of the least overclockable chips.  The only option for you if you want to overclock is to set it to 3.5 * 103 or 3.5 * 112.  Though some motherboard provide 124 and 133 FSB, it's very unlikely that you can run it stable at such speed.  All recent Intel chips are multiplier locked, therefore your only usable multiplier with PII 350 is 3.5!

By increasing the FSB you're then overclocking all other components too, i.e. your AGP card can run very hot at 112 FSB.  Registry could go corrupt and windows would crash, but if you're only running at 3.5 * 112 (392) then I shouldn't worry much.
