I think it's only 4 AB/CD slots (or so it says on the cardcage.)

I actually have a quad-height drive controller, which is a RQDX2. (oops)
so I changed to this:
3: M9047 empty
5: TQK50 empty
6: DEQNA empty
the DHV11 seemed happy, but not much else did. The diagnostic lights on
the DEQNA didn't go out, and the monitor came back with a
"?4B CTRLERR, XQA0" when I tried to boot off of the DEQNA. I figured that
it wasn't getting the bus properly, so I threw in some M9047s into the
empty slots below the TQK50 and DEQNA, and the DEQNA seemed to be happy,
but I still got a SCBINT when trying to netboot...
so I flipped the DEQNA and the TQK50, and put the grant cards back in
below them, and I'm still getting a SCBINT.
Does the fact that I have a RQXD2 have a bearing on anything?
FWIW, the original configuration of the box (written on the label of the
cardcage cover) has:
5: TQK50 M9047
It seems like I"m doing the "right thing"(tm) but my DEQNA is unhappy.
