I'd be happy to help. It's a two-layer board, so it's not _too_
hard to pull the old chips. The jumpers can be just a pair of
wires (0 ohm resistors are nice - single black band, but not

Sockets are a good idea, and there's clearance for them - I checked.

For mine, I was going to drop in a bunch of 41256s I pulled from some
MS820 boards about 10 years ago (we needed some BIICs and they were $350
new from DEC, or $50 when attached to a used 2MB memory card ;-). I
have a chip tester and have verified that I've only ever lost one DRAM
that I've desoldered that had its leads intact (and only a few by losing
a lead).
