Actually, I forgot about the SIMMs in my PS/2 9595....I wonder if those
would work (I've not had much success trying them in non-PS/2 machines)?

BTW I wasn't aware that there were 72-pin SIMMs that didn't provide true
parity. I'd always assumed this was a cost cutting phenomenon limited to
30-pin SIMMs? :-(
