[rescue] Swap E3000 Procs

I've got a couple of 336 Mhz procs to replace 250's that I have in an E3000.
The replacement process seems straightforward, except I don't have the
official Sun torque driver to squinch down the new procs.

A couple of pages Google turned up seem to indicate Bad Things will happen
if you don't use the Sun tool and therefore have the procs either too loose
or too tight in their contact pads.

How much do I need to worry about this? How tight is "tight enough" if I use
a regular driver? Any other things I should be aware of? Anyone got one of
the Sun drivers they want to pass along? :-)

This machine will serve up production data, so I don't want to %#@* things
up if possible.
