    Sure, you can overclock your FSB by going into the BIOS as your comp is starting up.
    When it is starting u'll c something like "Press del to eneter setup", Press watever it will tell you, look at all the bars and options, somewhere there will be an FSB speed options, just make it higher. Although be careful, cuz overclocking is dangerous, also you might have to overclock your momory core speed too, to keep it in a ratio with the FSB, but some bioses adjust that stuff automatically.

    KM266 chipset only support 200/266bus speed CPUs. It may overclock a bit, but it doesn't run 333mhz.

    Return the CPU and exchange it for a compatible chip. A 2400 or 2600 should work. Confirm that your BIOS support the chip or download and update the BIOS.

    fx41 is not listed as a shuttle mainboard. But I gather its the SK41G SFF system.
