PPC Upgrade Card + Centris 610 = 68020 ??

At work I have found a Centris 610 with a Apple PPC 601 Upgrade card. Problem is there are no instructions or software to get the thing working. I installed the Upgrade enabler and the matching control panel, which are available from Apple's FTP, and I can start the card up successfully.

However using Norton System Info's (Version 3.2) benchmark my overall CPU performance is terrible, about 3 times worse than without the card. Norton also
thinks I'm emulating a 68020.

Does anyone have any ideas why this is happening? What am I doing wrong? Does anyone have the software or documentation for this product?

Any help would be appreciated.

I'm not really familiar with Apple's upgrade card, but I know that with System 7.6 the computer should boot up correctly with just the System file and the finder.  There shouldn't be any need for an enabler.  I may be incorrect because of the way the upgrade card is handled.  I have also heard that certain upgrade cards do not work with certain versions of the system.
