I followed these instructions Link

And I picked the simplest configuration, 500 MHz, where it only involved taking off one resistor.

I took it off out and put it on my workbench but the window was open and it was windy and the thing was so damn small it blew of my desk and is now gone, (I looked for 2 hours). So I panicked for a while and kept hitting my head against the table. I then remembered that some guy was called crazy in emac overclk thread for connecting the resistor points w/ lead bingo! So I the 500 Mhz config first but it didn't work i just got a plz restart my computer at the startup screen so I erased the lead and put the config for 400 Mhz and it worked and I am talking to you now the thing is now I know I lost the resistor is there any need to replace my lead one? It only seems the resistors are only used at startup and wouldn't really affect my computer after that, and If I would need another one then where could I purchase one?

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
Having said that, theres a good chance that your lead connections will not last as long as a resistor would, so you may have to keep drawing them back on periodically.

I'm sure Radio Shack can sell you any resistor you might want.
