Well, you can do that, but it wouldn't really be the max.

On a Classic/LX, you can get 128 MB RAM if you put two 32 MB SIMMs in bank
0, and four 16 meggers in the remaining four slots.  Mind the silksceening
on the board, since the banks aren't laid out as you might expect.

All the SIMMs have to be 72-pin, FPM, real parity.  I'm using 36-bit-wide,
60 NS "PC" memory in mine, and it's been trouble-free.
