I purchased (2) 512MB DIMMS (PC133/100/66) from PNY and added them to the board. However, the bios was seeing Bank 0 at 512MB and Bank 1 at 256MB. I swapped them around with the same result. I mixed them up with some older 128MB DIMMS and it always saw one at 512 and one at 128. Bottom line, the RAM seems to be OK. Check out what happened when I flashed the BIOS...
