Must be bad SIMM as mine is booting just fine with only two installed.
As Michael mentioned, some systems might use 128-bit wide memory bus or
just have fixed 'two way interleave' for memory access, but my
AXPpci33 'noname' at least doesn't need SIMM in both banks.

I don't know about the initialization itself, but for me at least
the ViRGE (Diamond stealth 3D/2000/4MB) Xserver didn't work for it.
Generic Trio64V+ is working for both, console and X, but i ain't got
X anymore as i run pretty much messy Debian (installed from RedHat) now.
Both were working just OK as dummy terminal tho.
