Put the rest of the ram back in and you'll be fine. If you can't find
it, we'll have a whipround - I'm sure I've got some old 1MB SIMM modules
knocking around somewhere.

It has to be a typo... P-IV are from the year 2000, when common sizes for
memory where 128 megs and up. Minimum 64 megs.

The size 4mb were typical from late msdos times, when Win 3.x started,
year 1992 or so - and the mos modern cpus were the 386 or perhaps 486 - no
pentiums, even less the IV.

The presence of the acronym SCNR in a discussion should be a strong clue that
the writer is not entirely serious.

I'm guessing there were probably P-IV systems shipped with a 4MB BIOS ;).
