Flashing the bios is the best idea to start with. This will upgrade to the newest bios, which normally adds more features and fixes some bugs.
There is a small chance that this motherboard just doesn't support overclocking, but the majority of them do.
Below is the link to soyo's site and downloads for your model number. There was 4 or 5 bios updates. I would get the newest one.
Hope this helps

To start you need to go to some of the links here and find the manual.
When I tried, the main site was not accessible. That can change for a number of reasons. The manual may be able to be found at other sites.
Hope you find it.
Since this board is over 7 years old (2002) as stated at the link above, it may be to your advantage to upgrade to a newer board.
Another thing which you will find is that the bios probably should be flashed to get the newest version for this board. Before going too far on this board, everything should be checked over visually. Such as the dust, the components and so on on the surface of the board. You will have to decide.

Bios settings are retained by the Motherboard Battery in the CMOS.
Disconnecting the battery clears CMOS and returns the settings to their
original state. Typically this can be done by simply removing the CMOS
battery and waiting about 15 seconds before reinserting and booting PC.
Nowadays most Motherboard manufacturers supply a jumper to not only
disconnect the battery but also ground the CMOS to effectively drain
any residual power.
The instructions for your MB are found below. JP5 is located to the left of the battery and next to the PCI 2 slot on your MB. There is a Manual for your MB on this site and the MB layout can be found at
Follow the steps below to clear the CMOS memory.
1. Clear the CMOS memory by momentarily shorting pin 2-3 on jumper JP5. Its white cap can easily identify this jumper.
2. Put the jumper back to 1-2 to allow writing of new data into the CMOS memory.
