Memory from most Compaq Proliants should work just fine in that.

No it won't fit. The GX series boxes are way proprietary. On a side note the
W6Li is a nice board. I still have one with a pair of PPRO PII 333 MHz
OverDrive procs installed. My only complaint is no way to boot from CD-ROM
(Old BIOS)

Yepper has a 2940 UW built in IIRC. Also has a built in Sound Blaster 16. Like
I said, nice board (for PeeCee stuff).
