Trouble adding second CPU to G3 DL360

I have 6 G3 DL360s that all have the same Xeon 3.00 CPU. Each server has one CPU. I have decided to go dual CPU on three and have pulled the CPUs from 3 of them and added them to the other three. THe problem is that they will not post with Dual CPUs. I can pull the second and they post fine, add one and nothing. I even swapped CPUs and it did not change anything. Am I missing a jumper, or a switch setting to enable the second CPU?

Have you also installed a PPM for the 2nd CPU?

Dont forget to check Device Manager under "Computer" and make sure you have a "Multiprocessor" HAL installed otherwise you wont get to use your 2nd proc.
