If the BIOS knows about enhanced speedstep and ACPI (which it should)
then you can probably get access to the different settings via the

helpfully published a complete listing of the frequency/voltage pairs,
which I encoded into est.c. With the 133MHz Pentium M processors, Intel
decided not to publish all this; instead, they've just published the lowest
and highest pairs.
I am told that the data I need is available in the "Prescott, Nocona, and
