Not yet. We only support the PowerNOW! of the older AMD CPUs
(K6-2+ & K6-3+), we just got the info for the mobile Athlon PowerNOW!,
so that'll be coming at some point soon hopefully. (As soon as I
find a box to test it on). But this wouldn't help in the situation
of the original poster anyhow, as the PowerNOW! stuff is only in the
mobile Athlon 4's.
