There are many guides out there. I would reccomend http://www.pcmech.com/byopc/index.htm as i think its one of the most comprehensive available.

Good luck

there is a downloadable .pdf on chip installation available from AMD's website and the motherboard manual should tell you how to set up your board to have the correct settings for your RAM and your chip, if in doubt set it up as default, and you want your chip and RAM set to 133MHz if you have a jumper or DIP switch to maunally set up the clock speeds (266 comes from doubling the instructions per cycle)
