When you encounter a machine like this one, running the
initial OBP release, by all means make sure you update it, if possible. 
Especially if you will be changing CPUs.  Last time I had to replace the
failed system board in my SunBlade 2000, the replacement board came with an
ancient OBP that wasn't compatible with my 900Mhz CPUs.  Luckily I had a
750Mhz CPU laying around that I could use long enough to update OBP.

Glad you
were able to find the OBP patch you need!
