My Ultra5 actually has the 440Mhz CPU and 1 Gig of ram in it.  To get
the Gig of ram to fit, I did have to pull out the floppy drive.

You do need to make sure you have the latest firmware updates on the
Ultra5 or it may not work.

I did these upgrades last December, and like most Sun hardware, it
just keeps on running.
