Hmmm... don't the MS630/MS650 boards simply get power from the bus,
and memory transactions are over the PMI cable? If so, then what
about some sort of Qbus option which looks like a disk, but has a
connector on it so that it connects to the MS6xx board... ready-made
memory farm which could be used as a disk... (And don't some of the
boards come in 16mb and 32mb flavors?)
