Serial interfaces bw and clock rate question

Hi everyone!

Well, I've been playing with a cisco rack... actually I managed to get 4 serial links up (isn't it great? LOL!) but I realized that I don't have clear the difference between:

1.- clock rate
2.- Bandwidth

According to my study book, clock rate is used when the router has to provide signaling (ie be a DCE). Now, is this clock rate related to the serial line speed? IE: a T1 (1.544 Mbps), how would you configure it on the serial int?

Bandwidth, on the other hand, is used for routing protocols. Is this correct?

I ended up using clock rate 64000 and bandwidth 64 without knowing why exactly... and I don't like that!

Can someone show the light?

Saludos amigos!
