Assuming you don't want to use PMI memory with the KDJ11, you could
probably just remove (unsolder) the right half of the CPU slot, and
solder some bus grant jumper wires on the back. You can determine what
lines need to be jumpered from an M9047, and it shouldn't take too much
work with a dremel tool and soldering iron to remove the right half (two
connectors) of the CPU slot. This is, of course, assuming you're
comforatable doing that. If not, you can either get something with a
4x8/4x9 Q22/CD backplane, or perhaps a 2x4 backplane (H9281-BA/QA). The
H9281-BA will need you to connect A18-A21 (top 4 address lines) through
to each slot, as it's only Q18. The H9281-QA should work unmodified.

However, I think it'll be hard to find any useful backplane, you'll
probably either want to try to get something like a BA23, or modify the
backplane you have.
