Therein lies the problem - AFAIK, Ultra 2s *must* have the first 4 memory 
slots occupied in order to run, and the 2 suspect slots are in those first 
4. Oh well, I only use it as a learning tool/toy, and the machine knows 
how to deal with the errors, so I'm not going to worry too much about it.

p.s. - This machine is a dual 200 Mhz Ultra 2 - my first SUN4U machine - 
and I'm surprised at how snappy it is for workstation use, even with the 
only spare framebuffer I had lying around, a TGX :)
