If it were that simple.

AMD like Intel, has produced several different versions of some processors.

You need to look up your specific CPU in the AMD technical documents to verify the correct FSB and multiplier.

A good place to start is:

http://www.amd.com/us-en/Processors/ProductInformation/0,,30_118_1260,00.html

Then, you need to take your motherboard and RAM into account.
While the XP 2500 is likely a 266MHz FSB CPU, that only applies if your motherboard uses the correct speed DDR RAM.
If you have SDRAM, your FSB is limited to 133MHz and you need to double the multiplier setting.

Most motherboard manufactures have a supported CPU listing on their support pages.

Page 54 of this AMD document has a chart of CPU model numbers and speeds.

http://www.amd.com/us-en/assets/content_type/white_papers_and_tech_docs/20734.pdf

The document title is AMD Processor Recognition Application Note.

There are different CPU speeds for different amounts of Cache.

The XP 2500+ can be either a 266 MHz or a 333 MHz FSB

The XP 3100+ is a 400 MHz FSB
