" From: Charles Shannon Hendrix <shannon at widomaker.com>
" I've also had to replace tons of RAM in Suns that their diagnostics never flagged.
" There is no way to test RAM reliably like Sun does it in their bootup code.
" They use a roll forward test that virtually guarantees it will cover up at
" least half of the common RAM errors.
" Things like memtest86 are the only way to really see most RAM errors.
" Otherwise, yes, the Sun diagnostics are nice, but I have to say that I'm even
" disappointed in most UNIX machine ROMs too.

if you wanted to rewrite memtest86 in forth, you could patch the sun
