The memory (MS44) from a 4000/60 will work in a 4000/90 in every case I've
tried. All the simms in a bank must be the same capacity. I think there
should be a diagram of the banks on the inside of the cover, or you can
determine the banks by the etched/silkscreened numbers next to the simm

I'm sending this email from a 4000/90a which was quite a step up from my

Good luck.
