Err.. Drop into the firmware, and take a look, dood:

ok dev /memory
ok .properties
reg		0e000000 00800000
		0c000000 00800000
		0a000000 00800000
		08000000 00800000
available	0e774000 00060000
		0e6fe000 00001000
		0e600000 000fd000
		08001000 000df000

As I recall, the `reg' property indicates where each RAM slot is mapped into
physical address space, whereas `available' indicates which memory regions
are available for use by client software (i.e. the NetBSD kernel).  Note
that if a particular slot isn't filled, then it does not appear in the
`available' property.
