I forgot about the 6U slots... probably because I don't know of anything
that actually ever used them..... all the VME stuff I have is 9U.

I don't think they do... the memory boards for there are specific to the
4300 system and only work with that. The one I sold had both slots
populate with memory expansion boards.
