Proliant 3000 CPU configuration

I have a Proliant 3000 with a single PII300 processor. I want to install dual PII333 processors that I have in stock. The system boots, but gives a cpu config error, and identifies the the 333's as 300's. How do I get it to recognize the 333's? I don't have the manual for this thing! Is there a switch setting on the mainboard? Also, with the 333's, is it still limited to 512 Mb of ram?
