from /var/log/messages:
Feb 9 03:55:51 noisy kernel: Vendor: IBM Model: Memory Key Rev: 3.52
Feb 9 03:55:52 noisy kernel: SCSI device sdb: 499712 512-byte hdwr sectors (256MB)

on the stick it says:

        FC CE
        ASM 22P9027
        FRU 22P9031

Unfortunately, looks like IBM's 256M Memory Key model 22P9228 is a lot more common, cheaper, and accessible than the (older? newer? OEM?) 22P9031. Anything less than an exact match at least theoretically has the chance of behaving differently. Which means I probably can't help you as far as matching the stick and trying it here.
