Robert, acpi_cpufreq works fine to me.
I insert parameter CPUFREQD_MODULE="acpi_cpufreq" in my
/etc/powersave/cpufreq and now is possible use scaling frequency.

I read
/usr/src/linux-2.6.21.5/arch/i386/kernel/cpu/cpufreq/speedstep-centrino.c
and see that this module is made using document 25261202.pdf (from
Intel) as reference.

This document include only some Pentium M models.

My Pentium M is model 750 (1.86GHz) and you can see datasheet on
document 30526202.pdf available here:
<http://download.intel.com/design/mobile/datashts/30526202.pdf>

What I can choose on "CPUFreq Processor drivers" availiable in .config?
Currently I do that (in Kernel 2.6.21.1):

# CPUFreq processor drivers
#
CONFIG_X86_ACPI_CPUFREQ=m
# CONFIG_X86_POWERNOW_K6 is not set
# CONFIG_X86_POWERNOW_K7 is not set
# CONFIG_X86_POWERNOW_K8 is not set
# CONFIG_X86_GX_SUSPMOD is not set
CONFIG_X86_SPEEDSTEP_CENTRINO=y
CONFIG_X86_SPEEDSTEP_CENTRINO_TABLE=y
CONFIG_X86_SPEEDSTEP_ICH=m
# CONFIG_X86_SPEEDSTEP_SMI is not set
# CONFIG_X86_P4_CLOCKMOD is not set
# CONFIG_X86_CPUFREQ_NFORCE2 is not set
# CONFIG_X86_LONGRUN is not set
# CONFIG_X86_LONGHAUL is not set
# CONFIG_X86_E_POWERSAVER is not set

#
# shared options
#
# CONFIG_X86_ACPI_CPUFREQ_PROC_INTF is not set
CONFIG_X86_SPEEDSTEP_LIB=m
CONFIG_X86_SPEEDSTEP_RELAXED_CAP_CHECK=y
