That's interesting, because I noticed last night, that
openbsd reported the mmu (iommu) device had a range of
64Mb.  I assume, this refers to the maximum physical
address space?  There are four simm slots, so can I
only use 4x16Mb, or 2x32Mb ?  Has anybody tried 4x32Mb
?  Do you remember if you needed to add simms in
identical pairs?

That's not a problem :)  But, looking at the vast
canyon inside the case, I can't see why it couldn't
have them arranged more like the sparc1.  

I'd like to scrape togeather as much data as possible
about these boxen, so I can pass them on to the guys
writing the sunref guide :)  I'd also do something
similar for my other boxes, especially the 3/80 I
collected last night.
