Picasso IV and SysInfo

I was wondering if anyone knows why the Picasso IV board is identified as 3 different boards on the SysInfo and ReportPlus programs? This is a bare Picasso IV board. It has none of the add-on boards installed. I was trying to set up a sysinfo.boards file and got confused by this. I wouldn't think that if you were looking at a list of your installed boards that you would want the same board listed 3 times? The 3 listings all have different ID numbers. 21, 22, and 23.

My understanding is this has to do with the way the PIV allocates RAM in Z2 mode - either one or two 2 MB segments (jumper dependent), the third is probably 64 KB I/O space.

I guess what is going on here is just over my head. When I look at my Blizzard 2060 board with SysInfo it shows as only 1 board. If it showed as 3 boards I could understand it (accelerator board, ram board, scsi board). Which of the 3 boards showing for the Picasso IV would be considered the "actual" board for the purpose of IDing in the sysinfo.boards file?
