You might have to update OBP (OpenBoot Prom) before it will work. I had 
to before I could go from a 270MHz to a 333MHz.

I think the instructions are online, but I started a solaris install and 
it asked me if I wanted to update at some point. Once it was done I 
installed the processor and it worked fine.
