I have "Personal DECstation User's Guide" at hand, and it refers to
SIMM module installation procedure at chapter 9.  In page 9-4 I can
see a caution statement as

     CAUTION: The connectors in your system unit must all contain
     the same type of memory module: either 2-megabyte or 8-megabyte
     modules.  Your system won't work properly if you mix the two
