Hmm.. one more thing worth mentioning: the DS5000/xx had only enough slots
to get to 40MB. 8M on motherboard + 2 pairs of MS01-CA (2 * 2 * 8 = 32) = 40M

This WWW page outlines things nicely:

I've got another question - where do I find out what DS models match
the nicknames I keep seeing?  Ie, I think a pmax is a 2/3100 and a maxine
is a 5000/xx.  Am I right?  Is there a chart someplace? What's a 3max? 3min?
