Overclocking the eee PC 900. How?

How can I overclock my eee PC 900 (with an Intel Celeron M 900 Mhz processor)?? That's my question. On Windows XP I used to use the little tool eeect (or could also use the more mainstream SetFSB and it would run stably at up to 1070Mhz (from its native 900Mhz). It meant quite a lot, sometimes even the difference between playing a video skipping frames or properly. So I really wish I could overclock on Jolicloud, too. Is there a way to do so? Preferrably using the "CPU Frequency Scaling Monitor" already displaying in the panel (which, at least for me, only allows throttling the speed, not overclocking it).

Hopefully you will take this into account. I guess I'm not the only one willing to make their netbooks, at least, a bit less slow. ;)

You might be able to find a way to do this by searching through the Ubuntu forums. However, we cannot officially support it here, as it may or may not cause damage to your netbook (however unlikely that may be).
