Thanks for the responses everyone.  I will take a punt on a 128 MB SIMM, there 
are a few on eBay for not too much money.  Of course I will report any success 
or failure.

Incidentally, I'm really happy with how well NetBSD works on this old Mac, it 
was the first BSD system I set up and it's been running NetBSD 2.0 since around 
2006.  Having half-forgotten about it since then, I finally did an upgrade from 
2.0 to 6.0.1 last weekend and it went really smoothly.  Impressive.
