Standard and standard...  The R4000 Indigo uses the same type of memory
as the Indy does, IIRC, so you need full-parity 36 bit 72-pin
gold-connector SIMMs in identical quadruplets.  These are rare to find
in a PC, but you can find 4x32=128MB kits on ebay for $30-40 (and
4x16=64MB and 4x8=32MB kits for less).
