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.
