Fedora Core 3 x86_64 cpuspeed problems on Athlon 3000+ ?

I'm experiencing occasional errors like the following which seem to be
related to cpuspeed (using 2.6.10-1.741_FC3 RPM-installed kernel).

Basic questions are does cpuspeed do anything for an Athlon 3000+
chip, can it safely be disabled, and if so how?

Thanks in advance for any help/info/pointers.
