Ok got my second RC3330 today, both are memory less, they take 30 pin SIMMS ala
Sun3/60 I believe ?

What is the bank arrangement/min memory using 1MB SIMMS ? Any special jumpers
to connect ? I also got a second 3/60 so one of them can be cannibalised to try
and get a serial version of Linux up on the RC3330 (suppose the only way is via
floppy at the moment ??).

A general Linux/Mips query now, are any offboard Ethernet cards supported yet ?
I have a number of DEC DEPCA? Ethernet cards (which have Linux drivers in the
x86 Linux world) which I am using in my PC and would want to use thin ethernet
on my Magnum 4000 and RC3330's ? Any hope ?

Thanks for your time,
