Yepppp. Engineers threw it over the wall, and early ships only had 4mb , if you didn't order extra.. There were MANY problems with this, and most folks were GIVEN 4mb extra, after a great deal of howling.... IT would come up, but that's about it.... Remember... most early 400's were to replace S/36's, so 4 meg was quite a chunk(Who knew ???).... Just for the record.. 8mb remained the base memory for almost all machines up till the first RISC box 9402-400.... Larger boxes came with more but 8mb was the standard for thousands of machines..... +--- | This is the Midrange System Mailing List! | To submit a new message, send your mail to MIDRANGE-L@midrange.com. | To subscribe to this list send email to MIDRANGE-L-SUB@midrange.com. | To unsubscribe from this list send email to MIDRANGE-L-UNSUB@midrange.com. | Questions should be directed to the list owner/operator: firstname.lastname@example.org +---
