I thought I saw somewhere ages ago that some people had gotten more

Yes, both my Sharks have 96MB.
If so, how?
Sufficiently recent firmware can apparently deal with a few specific
64MB DIMMs in the leftmost slot ( left as in away from the
mainboard's edge ). For some reason I never got these modules to work
in the other slot, no matter what's in the left one. I heard of one
person who got two 64MB modules to work, don't have any details
though. If you want I'll send you pictures of the 64MB modules that
work for me.
Also, can this Shark running NetBSD 4 use a video mode which would
work on the TV output? I don't see anything like grfconfig or
We have no support for TV output on rev. 5 but XFree86's chips driver
which you'd use on rev. 4 ( I made that work a while ago in -
current ) may still have support for it. Probably bitrotted though.
