Pete,

  Actually I'd bet that your B10 was a 4MB machine.  The B10 MAXED at
16MB.  IBM Did supply an additional 4MB to B10 users and eventually just
gave the 4MB to the customer.  Pretty amazing to realize that V4R2 now
requires 64MB just to IPL.  I guess all that additional function comes
at a cost!
