The AlphaServer 800 5/400 requires memory in two banks of four. I tried 
what you suggest, but it will not boot at all w/o having a fully

replace whichever is bad, and have three spares for the future.

No major software project that has been successful in a general
marketplace (as opposed to niches) has ever gone through those nice
lifecycles they tell you about in CompSci classes.
