I second that motion from Matt. I used to work as a linux developer on

the VRM that goes along with the second CPU (so many IBM's running 
through my head).

Anyway, I'd suggest you bite the bullet and get it from IBM. If you get 
it from them, they are guaranteeing you that it will work in your 226.

The part number from IBM will be Option PN 40K2515 (FRU PN 13M8293). Got 
it from:
