fixing squeaky wood floors

We have a 100 year old colonial home with wood floors in the hallways. How can I get them to stop squeaking when walking on them?
I have no way of getting under them so is there a product or screw type that will blend with oak flooring?
Thanks.

Squeek-no-more (google it) will work, but you will have to fill the holes. Otherwise, I think its drill, countersink, screw, and plug.

I've heard of people squirting powdered graphite between the planks..but I really don't know how well that would work or last.

No flooring guy, but I read a lot...lol.

Seems like it would work better with carpeting. Not sure how it would look with wood flooring.
