I have the audio/mouse board and the ethernet/serial board, just no
video.  It's no problem getting a PS/2 mouse or keyboard here - the

Paolo in his reply said I needed standard 72pin simms with parity - and 
72pin simms seem to fit (though I don't have any with parity).  I had
thought that PS/2 simms were 80pin...
