SparcCenter 2000, we had one here actually.  10 system boards, up to 2
procs each (as I recall we had 16 processors in ours), 0, 8 or 16 SIMMs
per board which were 8M or 32M.  I believe we had the 8 system boards
that had CPUs full with 32M SIMMs for a total of 4G.  I'm pretty sure
the system was capable of going to 32 CPUs w/ the dual-CPU modules.  I'm
not sure if you could get more than 4G of memory in to it though.
