In theory the LX as the Classic will take six 16 M sticks of parity RAM, for
a max of 96 MB.  In theory, this is 33-bit wide, FPM memory.

In practice, you can put two 32 MB sticks in the first bank (pay attention
to the silkscreening on the board), and four 16 M sticks in the second and
third bank, and get 128 MB.  You can use 36-bit wide PC RAM, too, as long as
it's FPM, not EDO.

I've got some, but it's in deep storage on the other side of the planet, and
I won't be back there for a year.  However, it's not rare stuff, though it's
getting rarer; you ought to be able to find some.
