Softfsb or CPUfsb might work. Really depends on the chipset in the laptop.
If you ask me its really not worth it to O/C a laptop. They were designed for a specific heat load, not to mention that you will shorten the battery life. I guess if neither of those two things are important to you, than by all means give it a shot.
Clockgen works on some of them. Friend of mine got an Asus i875 Clockgen version working on his laptop. It'll work for sure with nForce2's and nForce3's.
I wasn't planning on running them for any long period of time, overclocked. I just want to see what they will do.
I'll try it.

My ECS A929 has an overclockable bios 133-150 FSB. Too bad that .13 micron CPU's do not get SSE when used in this thing. Have to use a palomino and those aren't particularly overclockable. No battery, always plugged in, modified cooling, so no worries.

if you have ATI graphics you can install the Omega Drivers and O/C you GPU- I O/C'd my 9700 (in my Acer 1662) and played UT2003 and Doom 3 nicely.
Battery uses dynamic switching anyways, so no loss there. Without a bump in volts, you're not gonna see a whole lot of extra heat, at least not that i can tell (only used a DMM with probe to test). I say go for it myself.

i would actually wanna underclock my laptop, as 1.2 ghz is plenty of speed for me. if i were to do anytihng to make it faster it would be to buy more ram. and id liek to find maybe a hard drive that uses less power, even tho i have no idea what its usin right now. i would like to get battery life up. it might be that the battery is worn out tho :-(
