[rescue] Ultra 2 Memory

Just an FYI, I read the messages about people installing memory in the U2 
and having
problems with it, and I thought I recalled reading something that said you 
have to install
SIMM's in sets of 4 in the U2, but wanted to check first before I sent that 
out.  I also seem
to recall that I ran into this same issue.

  I just now had time to check (yes, life is crazy, with my Dad getting 
ready to start chemo,
and my mother-in-law undergoing chemo....sometimes things just suck...) and 
I was right.
The on the Sun System Handbook 
and at the bottom of the section on Main Memory, it says "Install SIMMs in 
sets of four"

So, don't know if people were installing in sets of 2 or 4 (but I thought I 
saw one
message in this thread that said 2...)  but I know when I tried 2, got 
strange results.
Put in 2 more, and fired up just fine...

Anyway, FYI.
