IBM PS/2 memory

Just dug my IBM 65sx out, which had already lost 2 of its original 6MB due
to a bad memory module - but it seems like the remaining 4MB is not very
happy, either, and it flakes out at 3.7MB or so.
Obviously I need to source some replacement RAM. Does anyone know if the
systems are picky about what they'll work with? I believe they have to have
parity (unless there's some magic jumper/setting somewhere to make it work
with non-parity stuff), but are there any other gotchas involved in terms
of DRAM type, capacities etc.?
(I'm wondering about trying some of the RAM from my SGI Indigo2, but I
think that would mean losing 128MB from the system to give up a 32MB module
for the IBM, as I believe the SGI needs them to be installed in groups of 4
- that's assuming that it's even compatible, anyway)
