As do I!

Good question! I've got it set to 512K, but I think that should be OK because when I do DMAList it shows the NIC and USB boards consuming some of that but there's still quite a bit available.

Excellent work!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't the use of an A3640/A3660 in an A3000 require either:

a) Static Column ZIP RAM

or

b) Fast Page DRAM with RAMSEY 07/DMAC 04
