My message wasn't clear. I meant that I have enough RAM but its all in 1 MB
simms (30pin). i want to upgrade my motherboard so that I can get me a fast
video PCI video card (and I already have a very fast PCI scsi card that I am
dying to use) but I would be forced down to 8 megs of RAM at best. I need to
convert somm of the 30pin 1MB simms into 72 pin memory. I was looking for
the best wayto do that.
