What board are you useing I would say if it supports 333fsb chip it should have overclocking features in the bio's.

Turn it off take the battery out the board unplug the power cable wait 2 min's put battery back in and put her back up and see if you can get into bios's by pressing delete when starting the system.

Well it sure looks like you have a great setup. I am sure that being a Kt400 you should have complete multiplier freedom, you can start by upping the fsb to say 170-175 and backing the mulitplier down say 1/2-1 setting, this will increase your overall bandwidth and speed everything up alot, If your Barton is new you might try burining it in for a few days to a week, this may help your overall results in the end, do a forum search on burn in, also make sure your cooling is up to the choir of dissipating added heat from overclocking.
