[rescue] SGI Octane processor module compatibility questions...

I recently cleaned the fuzz out of my dormant Octane
system, and booted it up for the first time in a year.
Aside from the fact that I stupidly forgot the root
password, it works just as well as it did when I was
last using it. It's configured with a 300mhz processor
and 1.5gb of RAM. I would really like to upgrade the
processor in this beastie, but I figured I'd ping the
list and check to be sure that the motherboard can
handle the faster (or dual) processor modules. I seem
to remember that there were different revisions of the
logic board... I know that there were different power
supplies - I have the larger Cherokee power supply.

Andy ideas? Likewise, does anyone have a faster
processor module sitting around, collecting dust?
