IBM xSeries 336 Server Error

I've got an IBM xSeries 336 Server that I just pulled out of the rack to install a new processor.  the processor and heatsink went in fine with no issues, however now when I plug power back in to the server, the fans on the power supplies start running, and the green light on the front starts to blink, but I can't get it to power up.  The power error LED on the system board is flashing amber... I've verified that that power supplies are good, but still can't get this machine to power up...  Does anyone have any possible ideas that may help me troubleshoot this issue???

thanks
Randy

Are you sure you fitted a supported processor? The second processor must be identical to the first (same model, speed, stepping etc) Did you fit the voltage regulator when you fitted the new processor and heatsink?

The new processor is supported, and is identical to the previous one.  I'm not sure what you mean by voltage regulator...  I installed the processor and heatsink with no problems, as far as voltage regulator, what do I look for?
