LoL...Overclocking a 486? I'm not sure, but you can try the BIOS.

A 486 at 90?

I thought they were 25 or 33 multi. ie 4 x 25 = 100, 2 x 33 = 66.

Could try telling the motherboard that the CPU is faster, if you have the manual to can find the right jumpers, but I think you will find it unstable / unbootable.
Not to mention the fact that I don't think you will be able to get the motherboard to accept any thing greater than 100. (as that was the 486 top speed before replaced by Pentium)
