This can only be done if you have 4megb chips. If you tell by
counting the number of chips per simm. If you have 8 or 9 chips on
your simm - then you probably cannot do that since they are 1mb chips X 8
(or 9 for parity). Now if you have 2 or 3 chips on each simm, then you can
probably convert them.
Another thing you might want to look into is those simm holders that
allow you to "piggy-back" lower capacity simms onto one simm. I've
never tried it before. Has anyone here tried it?
