I need to know how to determine the following factors dynamically for my main memory in firmware :

1) the memory interleaving factor (1-way, 2-way, 4-way etc)
2) As how many banks the memory have been organised
3) The bank number in which each physical slot (or memory card) lies.
4) Where does the concept of "Channel" fits into memory architecture hierarchy, and is there a way to determine which entities of memory it holds.

FYI, I am using Dual Channel Sdram, there are 6 physical slots and the North Bridge is E7500 (Plumas)

If anybody have exposure in this area, please reply. Any pointers to the right source (not memory chip specs please) would be more welcome.

Thanks in advance.
