It seems that no matter what combo I use, I still get pin striping.  Any 1
or 2 boards and its fine.  Add in 2 more and its unusable, although hinv
output shows 4 (at least from what I remember, haven't turned the thing on
in a few years).

If anybody is in the Santa Fe, NM area and wants some sgi hardware, please
give me a shout.
