Rats!  Well, how hard would it be to instruct the kernel not to use the
memory in the second slot?  It *seems* like it shouldn't be too difficult
and I might then be able to use 32 of my 40 megs.  This sounds like a
generic NetBSD question and not just a port-pmax issue.  I may look for a
different list to pester.
