Typically, overclocking is done by adjusting the system bus speed.  The clock multiplier, at least on intel chips is fixed, so yourr only option is to adjust the bus speed.  IF YOUR SYSTEM SEEMS UNSTABLE, STOP OVERCLOCKING OR SLOW DOWN THE CPU OR SLOWLY up the voltage.  Also, make sure you have a good (if not great) heatsink/cooling system.

In addition, YOU SHOULD UNDERSTAND, OVERCLOCKING CAN VOID YOUR CPU/SYSTEM WARRANTY!

Here's some links on overclocking a 1.6 GHz P4.

If you have a flexible motherboard, you should be able to really push this processor.  I have the same one in an Asus P4B533 motherboard running at 2.4, a 50% overclock.  The normal FSB is 100, but I have it running at 150.  You also need faster memory, so instead of PC2100, I have PC2700.
