increasing HZ in Linux kernel

I want to increase the frequency of the clock interrupt up
to ~10000 to run some experiments.

In the kernel I'm using (2.4.2-2) I've noticed that
if you increase HZ above 1536 you get a conflict with
and if you add some lines there, you get a problem with
when HZ is above 4096.

Is there an easy way to increase clock interrupt freq, or
do I have to mess with the whole kernel ?

Thanks in advance.
