I think it's got 3 (4 if you count the slot with the processor, do you count
that?). The downside is I think all my memory cables are for KA630's. I
know the one on the KA650 can only handle two memory boards. With 3 8MB
boards, I'd like to use them all. Of course a pair of 32MB boards would be
even better :^)

The big problem is I want to run OpenVMS 7.2, DECnet, TCPIP on it (NOT
CMUIP though), and have it as part of my Cluster. I suspect 16MB really
isn't enough for running DECnet and TCPIP 5.0, though I've heard of people
running TCP/IP on 16MB machines. Hmmm, if one of the other machines in the
cluster is running TCP/IP, can the disks on the MV3 be accessed via that
machine? Guess I'd better look into that, if that will work, I don't need
TCPIP on this system.
