We'll need to see all of your settings. Find the template, fill it in, and post it. It should do the 1066, but, with no idea what speed your FSB is running etc, no way to provide advice.

I'll leave this to someone else, maybe you! Google is your friend. The net is full of fixes for these types of issues.
