Right, I bought the 16K version (3 rows of empty sockets) and populated it
with selected Intel 2109's (half-bad 2117's--you used the number after the
main part number to see which half to use).  About half of the 2109's that
I tried were good enough to run in the PC as 16K devices.  I got all the
2109's I wanted for nothing from the Intel sales rep, so it was worth the
trouble.

Cheers,
Chuck
