[ale] OT: SDRAM Memory

Here is what I know, I actually found the manual for my motherboard.  It
is a Spacewalker HOT-557 Version 1.32.  The web page is:

But from the web page I got some of the best info.

What I got out of it was that each slot can only support a chip up to 32 
megs, so if I use DIMMs I can only have 64megs
(32x2). If I use SIMMs then can have 128 (32x4). So SIMMs I go, so now my

1) Where does parity fit into all of this madness?

2) I have two 32meg parity chips in there right now, do I need to look for
two more parity? 

3) Does two parity chips play nice with 2 non parity chips?

4) Does anybody have a pair of older 32meg SIMMs they would like to sell?

Thanks in advance for the help, every little bit is appreciated.
